Changes to Elective Surgery

With regard to pre-planned surgery (elective capacity) and our approach to outpatients clinics, we will be providing emergency operative procedures only, together with management of cancer patients for whom it is absolutely necessary to ensure appropriate care. It is important that we do this to enable us to free up staff, free up capacity, and enable alterations to our bed base as necessary to accommodate large numbers of unwell patients. 

This does not affect our emergency admissions, cancer treatments or other clinically urgent care activity.
