In light of the recent rise in Covid-19 cases in London, hospitals have experienced extra demand for services.
So that Whittington Health can continue to see and treat those who need care urgently, there is a temporary stop to non-urgent services. This change began on Tuesday 22 December 2020. The services that are affected include planned procedures and operations as well and routine outpatient services and some non-urgent adult community services.
By temporarily stopping non-urgent services, Whittington Health will be able to free up staff and increase space on wards to safely treat patients who need emergency, critical or Covid-19 care.
Helpful information for you to know about
Whittington Health will be in touch with patients directly about how the temporary changes to services will impact their care.
