Hinchingbrooke Hospital expects there to be minimal disruption to services as a result of national industrial action arranged by Health Unions. However please note the following:
On Friday 8th 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.

We are currently experiencing an increased number of seasonal flu casesand for the protection of both you and our patients, we have temporarily restricted visiting to one person per patient, throughout the hospital. Please don’t bring children with you during your visit.
If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, such as fever, cough and joint pain, please speak to your GP for advice or telephone 111. You can find out more at: http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Flu/Pages/Introduction.aspx
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. 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.
In October 2014, 96% of patients who responded to our Friends and Family Survey said they would recommend Hinchingbrooke to family or friends. Find out more here.
