COVID-19 Management and New Measures
As cases of Covid-19 continue to rise, particularly across the South-East including Surrey, we have put in place a number of measures that will enable us to prioritise how we provide care, enabling us to focus on those patients who are critically ill.
These measures include:
- Postponing some routine and non-urgent elective procedures and operations.
- Continuing to prioritise those who need urgent and cancer care.
- Working together as a system with partners, to enable additional bed capacity, deployment of staff, as well as timely and safe discharge of our patients into the community, to support our Covid-19 response.
- Moving more of our outpatient services to virtual appointments to reduce the need for patients to come to our sites, which in turn reduces the risk of increasing levels of Covid-19 transmission.
We would like to thank the public for their support at this time, and remind people to follow the national guidance to reduce the spread of Covid-19; this will help protect our families, keep frontline services running and save lives.
