St Joseph's Hospital has joined the national response to Covid-19. We are proud to be able to assist the NHS in this way - uniting across the healthcare sector has never been so important for patients.
This is a difficult time for everyone. We are working together with NHS Wales to support NHS Health Boards, their patients and our NHS colleagues.
Virtual consultations are available across a wide range of specialities however we are not treating private patients until August at the earliest. Physiotherapy appointments are currently being offered via video link.
To help much needed capacity for the NHS, we will be providing care for NHS patients whose clinical needs are considered time-critical. As the pressure on the NHS evolves, so too will the nature of the support we provide.
St Joseph's Hospital has temporarily suspended all elective surgery. All outpatient appointments have also suspended except follow-up post-surgery physiotherapy appointments which will continue.
It's our duty of care to ensure that we take every precaution to keep our patients and employees safe during this time. The government have issued the following guidance which we’d ask you to follow.
To support screening for COVID-19, we are asking all patients, on entering our hospital to:

We can all reduce the risk of both picking up and spreading infection and disease by maintaining good hand hygiene.
Thank you for your cooperation.
The Covid-19 is a public health issue and requires ongoing monitoring by Public Health England. We are not able to offer testing for Covid-19 in the independent sector. The only valid test available is via Public Health Wales laboratories and is being conducted in the acute NHS setting.
