PATIENT NOTICE

HOSPITAL SERVICES UPDATE: Please find the below from Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership in relation to non-urgent surgery and hospital appointments: 

Hospitals in Greater Manchester are starting to resume non-urgent surgery and appointments.

If your appointment or surgery was recently postponed, please wait to hear from the hospital when they are able to reschedule you. There is no need to contact the hospital or your GP practice for this information.

At the beginning of January, the difficult decision was made to pause non-urgent surgery and appointments due to the impact of COVID-19 and the associated staff absence levels.

Although services remain busy, the situation has improved to the point where hospitals can start to resume non-urgent surgery.

Hospitals will initially start with day case surgery, which is where patients don’t need an overnight stay in hospital after their procedure. As the situation continues to improve over the coming weeks other types of surgery will resume as soon as they are able to.

The hospital team will contact patients directly when they can offer a new date for the appointment or surgery.

We appreciate how disappointing this will have been for patients affected by this over the past few weeks, especially for those who had already waited some time. Our local hospitals are working hard to resume services as quickly as possible so please bear with them.

In the meantime, patients waiting can visit the Greater Manchester While You Wait website (whileyouwait.org.uk) which has some information and advice on how to manage physical and mental wellbeing during this time.

Monkeypox Update - Aug 2022

The UKHSA, the organisation in England responsible for public health and infectious diseases, has been monitoring the number of cases and the spread of monkeypox since it was first detected in the UK.

 

It has advised that pre-exposure vaccination against monkeypox should now be offered to those at greatest risk of infection to help control the recent outbreak of the virus.

The NHS is following UKHSA guidance on prioritising those at greatest risk of exposure and local services are contacting people who are a priority for vaccination. If you are eligible for a monkeypox vaccine you will be contacted directly. You do not need to contact the NHS.

If you think you may have come into contact with someone who has monkeypox or who is feeling unwell or has symptoms that could be consistent with monkeypox infection, limit contact with others and contact your local sexual health clinic or telephone NHS111. Please do not visit A&E or your GP.

Find out more at Monkeypox - NHS (www.nhs.uk).
