Outpatient appointments during COVID-19

Updated 16 June 2022
Appointments are going ahead as usual. If you are coming to an outpatient appointment please do not arrive at your appointment more than 10 minutes early.
If you're receiving results or discussing care
You can bring one person with you.
A&E and Assessment Units
You can bring one person with you to A&E, Surgical Assessment Unit (SSU), Medical Assessment Unit (MAU) and Older Person Assessment Unit (OPAU). At busy times we may ask them to wait elsewhere until we are ready to assess you.
Diagnostic appointments (eg. x-ray or endoscopy)
The results will not be available during your appointment, so we ask you to attend alone except in exceptional circumstances.
  • All outpatients and visitors are asked to take a lateral flow COVID-19 test beforehand. Please do not come to the hospital if you have coronavirus symptoms.
  • Follow the self-isolation guidelines if you have, or live with someone who has, a high temperature or new continuous cough or a loss or change in your sense of taste or smell.
  • If are unable to attend a planned appointment, please contact us using the number on your appointment letter or the contact form. If we have to cancel your appointment, or change it to a virtual or telephone clinic, we will contact you in advance.

Bath's Clean Air Zone

If you need to drive through the city to reach us, please note that Bath operates a charging clean air zone (CAZ) in the city centre to tackle harmful pollution.

Cars and motorbikes are not charged. Charges apply to buses, coaches, HGVS, taxis, vans, pick-ups, motorhomes, horse transporters and some campers and Land Rovers depending on emission standards.

To check your vehicle and pay zone charges, go to If charges apply, pay within 6 days at GOV.UK. No reminders are sent.

Exemptions are available at for blue badge holders and wheelchair accessible taxis. Disabled tax class vehicles are automatically exempt.

High levels of pollution caused by vehicle emissions can affect healthy lung development in children and worsen heart and lung conditions such as asthma.

To help tackle air pollution in the city, please consider using the city's park and rides or make use of alternative transport where possible.

Car parking

There is limited public parking on site and we cannot guarantee you will always find a parking space, particularly at peak times during the week.

Please be good neighbours and park safely and responsibly on and off site. We can't ignore parking that can cause a danger to our staff and visitors, or that disrupts the running of the hospital and the care we provide our patients.

Drivers are also asked to back our 'Switch Off when you Drop Off' campaign and turn off their engines when dropping off passengers.


We provide free and dedicated motorcycle parking areas for members of the public to use. Please see the map for locations.
