Changes to our services - January 2021
We are caring for a rapidly increasing number of patients with COVID-19, which is placing unprecedented pressure on our services. To ensure we can care for the high numbers of patients we are seeing, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone some routine planned procedures. This allows us to move staff between departments and support critical care and COVID-19 wards. We will contact all patients whose appointments need to be rescheduled. Find out more.
We are now vaccinating priority groups against COVID-19 at BSUH starting with those most at risk from the virus; prioritising outpatients aged over 80 and healthcare workers who are at highest risk of serious illness from COVID. Please remain patient and wait to be contacted directly by the local NHS to be offered a vaccination appointment.
Keeping patients and our staff safe is our top priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please read our visitors guidance before coming to the hospital.
If you have an appointment at one of our hospitals, please attend alone unless essential; exceptions are a support person for antenatal appointments and scans, a single parent for a child, or an adult carer.
Please note you must wear a surgical face mask at all times inside the hospital. This will be provided if you don't have one.
If you have Coronavirus symptoms please stay at home and follow the Public Health England guidance for staying at home for more information.
