Coronavirus and hospital waiting lists

If you are waiting for surgery at either North Bristol Trust or United Hospitals Bristol, you may find the attached leaflet helpful.

Waiting for your hospital care | NHS Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire CCG (

Capacity within the Trusts for routine surgery has been reduced owing to the number of patients in beds being treated for Coronavirus and other non-surgical conditions.  The Trusts will prioritise patients for surgery according to their clinical need and where possible carry out operations within three months.  Non-urgent surgery where possible will be carried out within 12 months.

It is really important to keep well whilst waiting for your surgery - the leaflet gives some good advice about looking after your physical and mental health.

The PALS service at the trusts offers support and advice for patients.  Telephone numbers are listed in the leaflet.
