Changes to appointments on Bank Holiday, Monday 19 September 2022

Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the Government have declared a national bank holiday on 19 September 2022, when the state funeral will be held.

We have taken the decision to make some changes to appointments at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital on this day. This will allow individuals to pay their respects to the Queen, commemorate her reign and mark the final day of national mourning.

We will operate a limited service for emergencies and a small number of planned cases.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this causes.
