Right Arrow Hospital appointments in the winter weather
12 January 2010 at 14:14
Every winter the NHS experiences an increase in demand for its services and staff and managers at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust are working hard to ensure it is business as usual for patients.

As of Thursday, January 7, outpatient clinics at the Trust’s Southport and Ormskirk sites were operational.

Patients with an appointment for an operation should still plan to attend unless advised otherwise by the hospital.

However, if patients are concerned about travelling safely to hospital in the winter weather, they should call the number on their appointment card or confirmation letter for advice.

Patients who would like to rearrange or cancel their appointment should call 01695 656680.

Trust medical director Dr Geraldine Boocock said: “This frosty New Year weather has been difficult for us all. But I am proud and delighted to say our staff have risen to the challenge of continuing to provide the high quality, safe, clean and friendly care our patients have come to expect.”
