For our GPs

Important Notice for GPs


Please can we ask all GPs to advise any relevant patient who have experienced Norovirus symptoms within the last 48hrs not to attend the hospital to prevent cross infection. This excludes patients attending for a medical emergency.

Sending faxes to the hospital

Please make sure that you transmit Faxes only to the Safe Haven fax machines within the Trust for the purposes of protecting sensitive and confidential information.

Tel: 01234 792 133 is for referrals, appointments and patient-related transmissions
Tel: 01234 340 122 is for all other transmissions, including non-patient transmissions.

Please do not transmit documents to any other fax machine in the Trust, even if requested to do so, as only Safe Haven Machines are permitted to receive sensitive documents from external senders.

Contact Information

Contact details for all the departments in the Trust, including external telephone numbers and internal extension, is available from the following link: Directory of Consultants and Wards_Nov18
