cancel operation

Your rights if your operation is cancelled due to Covid-19

The coronavirus pandemic has put enormous strain on our healthcare system, with our dedicated NHS staff working tirelessly to tend to the thousands of extra patients this unforgiving virus has generated.

As the Covid-19 crisis has deepened, increased hospitalisations have forced most routine or elective surgery to be halted, numerous outpatient appointments and referrals have been delayed, and screening and tests for medical conditions were deferred or cancelled.
