Coronavirus - useful information

The latest health information about Coronavirus can be found at

Information and updates about our services can be found on this website here.

As of Wednesday 21 October, after reviewing the guidance for visiting as set out by NHSE, the Trust has taken the difficult decision to suspend visiting to all of our sites, with immediate effect.  We have taken this decision to limit the spread of Covid-19, and to protect vulnerable patients and ensure staff safety.  As soon as it possible to safely relax the visiting restrictions we will do so

From Monday 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.  A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.  It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.  For more information click here
