Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust
Business as usual at Hinchingbrooke
On Friday 9th January, Circle announced that they are regretfully withdrawing from their current contract to manage Hinchingbrooke Hospital. We’d like to assure you that our hospital remains open and caring for our patients is still our top priority. There will be no interruption to our services and if you have an appointment or require urgent medical attention, it’s strictly business as usual.

Seasonal Flu – Visiting restrictions
At this time of year it is usual to see an increase in flu-type illnesses, as well as diarrhoea and vomiting. If you are suffering from either of these, for the safety of our patients we ask that you do not visit the Trust until you have been free from symptoms for 48 hours. For advice, in the first instance please contact your GP or telephone NHS 111. Thank you.

If you are pregnant, with flu-like symptoms please read the attached pregnancy and flu information sheet from the Midwifery Team.
It’s important to remember that you can only become infected with the Ebola virus if you have come into direct contact with the blood, body fluids or organs of an infected person. No cases of imported Ebola have ever been reported in the UK, but if you have recently returned from West Africa and have any of the symptoms of Ebola you should not come straight to A&E but should contact 111 or your GP immediately so you can be met and treated in an appropriate place.
