Outpatient Appointments

PATIENT BRIEFING – March 26, 2020
Outpatient appointments

Following the Prime Minister’s message on Monday, the Trust has taken the difficult
decision to postpone all routine, non-essential outpatient appointments.

All outpatients, excluding maternity, at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS
Foundation Trust will be contacted as soon as possible, either by text or letter,
advising them not to attend their appointments unless asked to do so by the Trust.

Patients will be placed on a holding list until such time as we are able to reschedule
these appointments safely.

Patients with maternity appointments will be contacted individually by a midwife to
confirm their arrangements.
