Resume shedule for hospital apts which have been cancelled.
Out patient appointments which were cancelled at very short notice after 23rd March 2020 should be rescheduled starting no later than the end of May unless the number of Covid 19 infections and deaths increase significantly. The staff working in these areas should be tested for infection or antibodies and should not be working or in contact with workers in the Covid 19 inpatient areas to minimise cross infection.
Why the contribution is important
Inpatient apts are for diagnosis or follow up of patients. Putting these on indefinite hold means that either conditions are not diagnosed or patients cannot resume normal activities following treatment. For example, vision tests following strokes, which must take place in order that the person can resume driving.
