Coronavirus: latest information and advice
Your hospital appointment
From Thursday 19 March 2020, unless we have asked you to come into hospital, all face-to-face outpatient appointments are being replaced by telephone or video consultations.
Unless we have asked you to come into hospital, you will receive:
- a call from your doctor offering you a telephone consultation if clinically possible. Your doctor will aim to call you within an hour of your scheduled appointment time
- If you miss the telephone call, or are not able to answer the call, your doctor will review your notes, write a letter to you and your GP and make follow up arrangements as necessary.
What to do if you have symptoms
Stay at home for seven days if you have either:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or come into hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

We will not be testing people who are self-isolating with mild symptoms.
