COVID-19

Please note that due to the coronavirus we are deferring all appointments for further care. The progression of the virus throughout the region will determine when we can re-start seeing routine patients again. We do hope that we can get the service up and running and soon as possible.

Should you feel that your symptoms are causing you serious concerns or that you feel you cannot wait for further contact please do contact your GP as soon as possible or in an emergency situation please attend your local Accident and Emergency Department.

Once we are in a position to resume the service we will be in touch with patients individually.

Somerset Surgical Services is pleased to confirm we are compliant with the Department of Health’s policy to eliminate mixed sex accommodation, except when it is in the patients overall best interest, or reflects their personal choice.

Sharing with members of the opposite sex will only happen for clinical necessity in areas such as the post operative recovery suite, high dependency or critical care unit. Patients nursed in this area will be moved as soon as the requirement for enhanced nursing is no longer required and the patient will return to a single sex accommodation area.  Compliance for this measure is monitored monthly through the department of health.
