Preparing for surgery
We are now reopening our theatres for routine elective surgery following a brief period of reduced operating. We are continuing to offer urgent and emergency operations and procedures, and we have begun booking patient’s from our previous waiting lists.
Please be aware that there are currently special arrangements for surgery to ensure everyone’s safety.
