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.

Spiritual and Pastoral Care

There are Chaplains in the hospitals who are available to spend time with you if you would like to talk about anything, whether related to your faith or not.  If you would like any support we can arrange to meet with you. Depending on your situation we are able to visit you or speak to you on the phone or on FaceTime.  If this is something you would like to know more about, please do ask a member of ward staff to contact us.

Alternatively, you can email us at contactachaplain@nuh.nhs.uk

We hope the following resources will also help you.
