We have received an update from the National Coagulation Centre, you can read below in full:

We would like to thank everyone in the patient community for their continued support and patience during this challenging time.

We are pleased to announce that the H&H Assessment Unit (HHAU) will reopen to patients for planned day procedures from Tuesday 27th October, 2020. The unit will operate from 08:30 – 17:00 hrs Monday – Friday only.

If attending the HHAU, you are asked to please attend at the time of your appointment only. Space in the HHAU is limited and social distancing can only be maintained with fewer people present in the clinical area. Where possible you should attend the HHAU on your own however, if you require assistance, a person may accompany you but may be asked to wait outside of the HHAU area until you are ready to be discharged.
