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.

If you are a contact, including a household contact, of someone who has tested positive for covid-19, please do not attend your appointment. 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.

To book an appointment at a vaccination site visit the online National Booking Service or call 119.
