There has been significant media coverage of a national announcement about most planned operations and follow-up outpatients appointments being cancelled to enable hospitals to focus on emergency cases.
There is no need for you to call the hospital to check - if Aintree is cancelling an operation or an outpatient appointment then we always contact the patient/their family directly.
Therefore, if you have not heard from us then please attend as planned for your procedure, as indicated. If you have any further queries about your appointment then please contact the number on your letter.
We will be keeping the situation under review, but we will always contact patients/their families directly if any operation or appointment needs to be cancelled so that our staff can deal with the large number of emergency cases we are currently seeing.
