At your appointment
It is likely that you will have been asked some questions before coming to the hospital for a planned operation or for an outpatient or diagnostic procedure. Even so, you will probably be asked to answer the same questions again in a screening questionnaire.
In addition, your temperature may also be checked. Depending on what you are attending for, you may need to have a swab test.
This is so that we know the very latest information about you, so that we can help protect you, other patients and visitors, and our staff.
If you are unable to attend the hospital for any reason, please contact us as soon as possible using the telephone number on your original appointment letter or by completing the online cancellation form. This is important, so that we can use that time to see other patients.
