Following the announcement of a public holiday on 19th September, as a mark of respect during the state funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Trust has been working to enable the safe running of as many patient services as possible.
All clinically urgent and cancer surgery will be maintained and the Trust will be running some outpatient clinics including, pre-operative clinics. Our Emergency Departments will be open as normal.
Any patients who have an appointment on 19th September should attend their appointment as planned unless they have been contacted by the Trust beforehand.
Appointments impacted by the Bank Holiday will be rescheduled, on a clinically prioritised basis, over the next two weeks.
