As part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all patients are required to have carried out a quick COVID-19 test (lateral flow test) before attending the hospital. You must provide evidence of a negative result on arrival via the NHS App if you have a smartphone, or alternatively, an email or photograph of the negative result.”
GP walk-in service and CT scan update
The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) is currently experiencing disruption to its imaging service, which will affect the GP walk-in service and existing CT scan appointments.
After careful consideration, they are now accepting urgent referrals only, until Monday 7th February, during the times listed below:
The Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow – radiology department, location B6: Monday-Friday, 8am-12:30pm and 1:30-7:45pm
Herts and Essex Hospital in Bishop’s Stortford – radiology department: Monday-Friday 8:30am-12:30pm and 1:30-4:30pm
St Margaret’s Hospital in Epping – radiology department: Monday-Friday 8am-4:30pm
At this time, it is necessary to cancel all existing routine CT examinations and reschedule.
New referrals will be added to the waiting list, however they will review and see patients in order of clinical priority, so you may experience a longer wait time.
We review our Diabetic Patients annually. If you are diabetic, you will be recalled to one of our Clinics where a specialist nurse will undertake a review of your care. Should she feel you need to see a GP, this will be arranged at the time.
