Patients attending Outpatient clinics ae required to complete screening questionnaires prior to attending appointments, have their temperature taken at the entrance to the facility and wear face masks (masks are provided on arrival). If a family member has driven you to your appointment, we ask that they wait in the car. However, by prior arrangement carers are welcomed, but should also have completed a screening questionnaire and will follow the same regulations on arrival as the patient.
Patients attending for surgical procedures are required to attend the hospital 72 hours before admission for a COVID-19 swab test and then return home and self-isolate until their admission date. If having day case surgery, we usually advise patients that they will be at the hospital for between 5 and 6 hours from their admission time.
