Urgent and emergency cases and cancer treatments will continue but there may be changes to dates. We will do our best to keep any delays to a minimum.
Routine referrals from GPs and most outpatient appointments will also be postponed for at least three months, as part of steps to make sure we can maintain consistent levels of safety and standards for people using our services.
Where possible some of the services that are continuing may also be delivered in a different way to the usual face to face appointments and instead we will use video and telephone consultations when it is clinically appropriate.
We are sure our patients and local people will understand the need for the steps we are taking and support our staff over coming weeks and months.
