Outpatient Information

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, scheduled hospital appointments had to be cancelled and in line with Scottish Government guidance, focussed on urgent referrals only.  By cancelling scheduled appointments, clinicians were able to focus on the immediate response to the pandemic, as well as free up clinical areas during this challenging time.  Outpatients Services are now beginning to resume gradually, safely and carefully, in a series of stages.  The attached poster and leaflet provide information and guidance on what to expect when attending hospital for an Outpatients appointment.  There is also a video, which can be viewed using this link https://youtu.be/RjNli8JGwDs.  Information can also be accessed and shared via the Caring for Ayrshire Facebook, Twitter and web page -  www.nhsaaa.net/caring-for-ayrshire.  The South Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership are keen to ensure they provide the most appropriate information and formats to help keep you informed so please get in touch if you would like to discuss this or require information in different formats - caringforayrshire@aapct.scot.nhs.uk
