The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff.
At this present time we are cancelling some routine appointments and visits with a focus on protecting those who are most vulnerable in our communities. We apologise if we cannot currently meet your expectations and sincerely thank you for your patience and support at this difficult time.
