RCHT has joined the fight against Coronavirus by recruiting COVID-19 patients to participate in a ground-breaking new study of the disease performed by the partnership between the GenOMICC Study Consortium (led by the University of Edinburgh) and Genomics England. The study, announced by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock, on 13th May will help us better understand the virus’ varied effects on people and support the search for treatments.
As part of a major deal with NHS England, Ramsay Health Care UK will provide additional emergency capacity to the NHS from all our hospitals. This will include the provision of urgent acute, trauma, medical and cancer cases.
Following the announcement of the further restrictions on movement of the population to help us slow the spread of coronavirus, we have taken the difficult decision to further restrict visiting to hospitals from today (Tuesday 24 March, 2020).
