What to expect when you visit us

We are operating COVID free pathways and patients having surgery are tested before admission and undertake a period of isolation before their procedure. All our staff are regularly tested and over 90% of our staff have already received both doses of their vaccination. We continue to take precautions with all staff wearing personal protective equipment for everyone's protection. We plan all of our admissions carefully so that we can treat as many patients as safely as possible.

Talk to us however, whenever you want

We understand that face-to-face appointments may not always be convenient and that a video consultation from your choice of place may suit you better than attending the hospital.
