Follow up appointments

You may need a follow up appointment. The receptionist may arrange this for you at the time, but if not we will write to you. After your appointment we will write to your GP. Please let us know if you do not want copies of these letters.

Before going home

If you are going to care home or hospice after being in hospital you will be tested for coronavirus before you leave hospital. If the result of the test is positive, your care home will make arrangements to prevent the virus spreading to other residents or staff, following national guidance.

Taxis home

After your appointment, if you need a taxi to take you home we have a designated taxi phone situated on the south side of the ground floor at UCH to book your taxis. Any member of staff can direct you to the taxi phone. If you are a taxi card holder please go to the transport desk in the main foyer (the atrium) on the ground floor who can order a taxi for you, but you will have to pay for it yourself.
