Condition check guidance

In order to protect patient confidentiality we can only give out a condition check for a patient if we are given the name, date-of-birth and address of the patient and have the patient's or relative's permission to release the information.

In some situations anonymous condition checks can be given out for patients who have not been named in the public domain. However, we will still require a name, date-of-birth or address in order to verify and provide the information.

For further information on the NHS code of practice regarding confidentiality click here

To make a request about a condition of a patient please call the York Hospital Switchboard on 01904 631313 and ask to be put through to the Bed Office.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.

 

These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
