Coronavirus update and information

Patients and visitors

More in this section

We are a designated centre for treating patients with coronavirus. At times there will be patients with this illness being cared for in a specialist unit at St Thomas' Hospital.

As one of a small number of specialist centres in England that treat people with very infectious diseases, our experienced team are well prepared for this.

As the patients are being treated in isolation, there is absolutely no risk to any other patients or visitors. 

All of our services remain open as usual, so if you have a hospital appointment please attend as planned.

If you are worried that you may have coronavirus, please call NHS 111 before attending your appointment or coming to one of our sites. You will be given advice about what to do next.

For further information about coronavirus, please visit the NHS website.
