Arrangements for appointments
Because of the COVID-19 situation, a number of our regular services were temporarily suspended or reduced for several weeks during the Spring and early Summer so that we could respond to the demand in other areas. We are now restarting all our services and are seeing patients again. Click here for more information about how we are holding and arranging appointments.

Looking after children
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) has created a resource for parents, families and carers who may be worried about a child who is unwell or injured. You can see this information here.
