Attending A&E during Covid-19

Our Emergency Department is still available 24/7 for patients requiring emergency care for serious and life-threatening conditions. If you are not sure if it is an emergency please call 111.  You can also access 111 online here.

If you think you may have Coronavirus, please use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do. Please only call 111 for Coronavirus help if you can’t get help online.

To ensure the safety of both our staff and our patients, all patients arriving at the Emergency Department will be assessed at the entrance by a nurse. Patients who require emergency care will be directed into either the Coronavirus area or the routine emergency waiting area.  

As always we will prioritise patients on clinical need so you may face delays due to the high level of clinically unwell patients we are currently seeing.

Please also remember Haslemere Minor Injury Unit and Woking Walk-in Centre are also open for you.

Our visiting restrictions are following government guidelines. Click here to read the latest visiting restrictions.

Our staff will be following the Hands, Face, Space guidance, and we ask that you do too. As such, please ensure you wear a mask when you come to the hospital - if you do not have a mask, then one will be provided when you arrive.

All of our staff will be wearing the relevant level of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) depending on where you are in the hospital, and whether you are an outpatient or inpatient. If you do not think that they are wearing correct PPE or following the guidelines, please speak to them.
