LATEST COVID-19 UPDATE 05/11/2020

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement England is now in lockdown. Tetbury Hospital will remain open treating patients during lockdown.

Government guidance is that you can leave your home and attend hospital for an appointment or an operation. Also, if you are unfortunate enough to need urgent care our Minor Injuries Unit is open too.

We will continue to deliver an efficient, effective, and safe service to our community and will update how we deliver services in line with up to date Government guidance.

If you need any further information please contact 01666 502336 or email enquiries@tetburyhospital.co.uk


OUTPATIENTS (OPD)
Where possible appointments will be conducted over the telephone by the Consultant, if a face to face appointment is required we can plan for that too.  

We are limiting the number of face to face appointments per day to adhere to social distancing guidelines and we are asking that patients come into the hospital alone unless they need someone to assist them.

When patients arrive outside the hospital, we are asking them to call our Outpatient Department on 01666 501781 to let us know they have arrived. We will call them back when it is time to come in.

Upon entry to our hospital we will check every patient’s temperature, provide them with hand sanitiser and also a face mask, if they have not brought their own face covering with them.

During the visit we will ask patients to keep two metres apart from other people, except from the clinical team who will be delivering their care. Every member of our hospital team will always have appropriate PPE.

DAY SURGERY (DSU)
Based on NHS guidance, all patients will receive a COVID-19 test 48-72 hours before their surgery to ensure they are well enough to attend. We provide this test via a drive through clinic on our hospital site. 

When patients arrive outside the hospital, we are asking them to call us on the number found on their admission letter to let us know they have arrived. We will call them back when it is time to come in.

Upon entry to our hospital we will check every patient’s temperature, provide them with hand sanitiser and also a face mask, if they have not brought their own face covering with them.

During the visit we will ask patients to keep two metres apart from other people, except from the clinical team who will be delivering their care. Every member of our hospital team will always have appropriate PPE.

Our day surgery unit has plenty of space and we have also reduced the number of patients on our surgical lists to ensure patients are more than two metres away from other patients and to give the staff time to thoroughly clean between operations. Our theatre has a specialist HEPA filter that cleans the air between patients.

MINOR INJURIES UNIT (MIU)  &  X-RAY DEPARTMENT
We have remained open though out the pandemic, our opening hours are Monday to Friday 8.30am to 4pm (closed on public holidays).
