What to Expect
Your outpatient referral will be triaged by the relevant clinical teams in conjunction with the consultants. Following that…
• You will be contacted from our Outpatient Bookings Office by telephone. During this call, you will be given the above screening questionnaire.
• Your appointment date, arrival time and building entrance / exit details will be explained to you in detail. It is important that you adhere to these instructions so that we can maintain patient and staff safety at all times. You will find signage and staff available within the building to assist you on the day.
• You will be advised of any relevant protocols regarding the wearing of masks, social distancing etc.
• Upon attendance for your appointment, you will be asked to confirm that your answers to the screening questionnaire have not changed. If they have, you will be advised appropriately.
To enable us to operate our Outpatient Services safely, smoothly and effectively, it is vital that you inform us of any change to your status regarding the COVID-19 screening questionnaire as timely as possible.
We are grateful to you for working with us to keep our patients, staff and community safe.
