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 10 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.

The latest information on the Covid-19 vaccination programme in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire can be found here.

Access to personal information

You have the right to ask for a copy of your health records and any other personal information that we may hold about you, such as employment or training records.

Such requests will be dealt with as a subject access request under Data Protection legislation. We are obliged to provide within 30 days unless an exemption applies.

Limited rights of access to health records of a deceased person are provided under the Access to Health Records Act 1990.
