Latest information about coronavirus (COVID-19)
The NHS in Nottinghamshire and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
However, as the national situation is changing regularly and to ensure we continue to keep people safe, this may mean that some changes have to be made to our services. Patients and service users are advised that they should attend their appointments unless informed otherwise. If a change is made to the service you access, you will be contacted directly by the service to advise you.
For visitors to our inpatient wards, please make sure you call first to see if any changes to visiting have been made. Again, any changes are to ensure the safety of our patients, staff and the public.
If you have symptoms of coronavirus please do not access our services in person but call the regular number for that service instead.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:
- Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
