A healthcare professional who works on our paediatric respiratory team at Royal Brompton Hospital has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
We would like to reassure our patients and their families that anybody who came into close contact with this individual is being informed and will be offered advice. No current inpatients are affected. The majority of our children’s services are unaffected and all essential treatment is being carried out.
The Trust is working with Public Health England and implementing NHS guidance to control risk from the virus. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.
