Following the sad death of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II, the Government has declared Monday 19 September as a Bank Holiday to allow members of the public to pay their respects to Her Majesty and commemorate Her reign, while marking the final day of the period of national mourning.
We will be treating this as we do other Bank Holidays which means all planned surgeries, outpatient, diagnostic and phlebotomy appointments at our hospitals and in our community services will be postponed.
We will be contacting affected patients directly and will look to re-arrange your appointments as quickly as possible. There may be some exceptional circumstances, such as chemotherapy, where your appointment needs to go ahead on Monday. Please do not call us, we will contact you directly.
Our A&E departments will remain open as usual. For all other urgent health needs over the bank holiday, contact NHS111 online www.111.nhs.uk or call 111.
