If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia) – the advice is to stay at home for seven days. All members of this household should remain at home for 14 days.

If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.

Frank Coffey Image "Our vision is to create an academic department for education & research into unscheduled care. This facility will be centred on the Emergency Department and Acute Medicine but seeks to evaluate the treatment and outcomes for patients from onset of their illness in the community through to the pre-hospital and acute phases of their care.
