To help protect our patients and staff from flu virus and norovirus, do not come into the hospital if you are feeling unwell and experiencing flu-like symptoms, diarrhoea or vomiting.

How you can help us if you are not well:

Do not visit the hospital until you have been free of symptoms for 48 hours

If you have an appointment or it is essential to visit a friend or relative, speak to the ward sister or manager prior to your visit.

Wash and dry your hands, making use of the alcohol sanitisers located across the hospital.

RNOH operating normally

Many of you will have seen the news about the plans at many hospitals to postpone non-urgent surgery until the end of the month. At the RNOH, we are continuing to operate at normal service levels so please continue to attend your appointments with us. If you are unable to attend please contact us as soon as possible.

The departmental contact numbers are listed under the 'Appointment Contact Numbers' drop-down menu on the contact us page.
