Surgery at RJAH


We have re-introduced elective surgery to our patients based on clinical need. We will get in touch with any patients who are currently waiting so please do not contact us.

Outpatient appointments


Patients who need to attend an appointment at the Outpatients Department at RJAH are being asked to leave their relatives at home or for them to wait in the car.


It's important to reduce the number of people through the doors of the hospital, in a bid to protect staff and patients – with the exception of those, who require a carer to accompany them.


Those with children are also being advised not to bring them into the hospital.


Please email if you are not planning to attend your appointment. 


Visiting someone in hospital


We are now offering visiting to all our inpatients at RJAH. You can read more about this here.

Face coverings 


Patients at RJAH are being asked to wear face masks when on the hospital site in order to protect other patients and members of staff. 


Covid-19 Vaccination Service


The coronavirus vaccination programme has substantially reduced the risk from severe covid-19 in the UK. It's safe, effective and gives you the best protection against coronavirus.


The deadline to receive your Covid-19 booster has now passed, however first and second doses are still available through the evergreen offer. Please come forward if you haven't had either of these doses.
