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.

How we make decisions

This section contains links to details of our decision making processes and records of decisions.


Board papers – agenda, supporting papers and minutes

Our Board is the governing body of the Trust and is held to account for our performance in delivering healthcare and health improvement. The Board aims to provide leadership, to look ahead, to set strategic aims and to identify and maintain the Trust's values. The Board is made up of executive directors and non-executive directors.


Public consultations (for example, concerning closures/variations of services)

For details of specific consultations please make a written request


Internal communications guidance and criteria used for decision making (i.e. process systems and key personnel)

We keep our staff informed about key issues and our progress against our priorities through a number of channels, including weekly email bulletins, our bi-monthly newspaper (called NUH News), our staff intranet site and face-to-face meetings.
