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.

Children's leaflets

As part of your care you should receive information about your appointment, test, operation or anything you need to do when you return home. If you are not given these, please speak to your doctor or nurse.

The information in these leaflets is designed to complement the advice of professional healthcare staff. They should not be used on their own without appropriate medical advice.
