Notice for National Aspergillosis Centre Patients
NOTICE FOR PATIENTS WHO ATTEND THE NATIONAL ASPERGILLOSIS CENTRE (NAC), MANCHESTER.
The NHS in the UK is currently facing an extremely demanding situation in acute and critical care and Wythenshawe Hospital is no different as we run an active A&E department. We need to plan for increasing admissions and demand over the next few weeks, so we are expanding this aspect of our resources as much as possible so as to be ready. Unfortunately this means that staff are having to be taken from other services, and as NAC is part of the Infectious Diseases department our staff are in particular demand.
Consequently for a limited time we are having to reduce the size of our clinics as much as possible. Many people are stable and after discussion with NAC staff can be given a new appointment with no ill effects. Those who feel that they need to be seen, or who we feel need to be seen will be seen after a discussion with one of our specialist nursing team. Essential care remains a priority.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
If you have an appointment at NAC on or before the end of April 2020 please phone our dedicated line to either rearrange or speak to a nurse. Call
