Patients urged to attend appointments as normal

Despite winter pressures, patients booked in for outpatient procedures are urged to continue to attend their appointments at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Leaders at the Hospital are expecting a wave of phone calls from patients who are concerned about their appointment following recent national media coverage about the NHS winter plans.

Chief Executive Jon Green said: “Whilst we have cancelled some operations, and despite high levels of attendances at A&E, we would like to reassure the public that our outpatients appointments are running.

“So we would ask all patients to continue to attend their appointments as normal unless we contact them directly. However, we continually review the situation.”
