Advice for patients attending hospital for surgery during the Coronavirus (Covid 19) Pandemic

Patients attending hospital for surgery must isolate for fourteen days prior to admission, this also includes members of their household and  the person who is bringing them to hospital, if they are not part of the patient’s household.  For more details, please see the EKHUFT patient advice leaflet.
