Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance For Patients

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE FOR PATIENTS

You will all be aware that the current COVID-19 pandemic is placing strain on healthcare systems worldwide.

We are working according to guidance from Public Health England and the private hospitals in which we work.

Private hospitals operating capacity have now reduced, and planned operations are no longer being offered at BMI Healthcare or Spire hospitals.

We appreciate the absolute need to provide safety and reassurance – so we are also offering telephone consultations in addition to face-to-face consultations for existing patients.

We are taking all precautions within the hospital and keeping patients at a distance and washing our hands and using sanitiser in between each patient.

Please do not attend if you:

  • Have a high temperature, dry cough or other symptoms of the virus. The current recommended isolation period is 14 days
  • Or have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19
  • Or are living with others who are self-isolating.

Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jane, my private secretary on 01753 665451.

Please stay safe.
