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.

Information Governance

Information Governance is how the NHS (and NUH) handles all organisational information - in particular the personal and sensitive information of patients and staff. It allows organisations and individuals to ensure that personal information is dealt with legally, securely, efficiently and effectively, in order to deliver the best possible care.

The framework currently encompasses:

  • General Data Protection Regulations
  • The Freedom of Information Act 2000
  • The Confidentiality Code of Practice
  • Records Management
  • Information Quality Assurance
  • Information Security
  • Information Governance Management
