Supporting the NHS in the fight against Covid-19

We are proud to announce that we will be working side-by-side with our NHS family and fully dedicating our resources to the fight against Covid-19. Read more about the support Aspen is pledging to the NHS here.

Stopping of non-essential visitors to our facilities

In order to support social isolation, we are stopping all non-essential patient visitors to the wards. We are also asking outpatient visitors to attend appointments unaccompanied by family and friends, if possible.

We will of course assess any extenuating circumstances on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the hospital to assess individual needs.
