Paul Brennan, Director of Clinical Services at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said:

"Planned operations due to take place from Wednesday 14 March will go ahead as usual. Outpatient and diagnostic appointments and urgent surgery were not affected by the pressures on the NHS locally and had not been postponed.

"I would like to thank our patients for bearing with us during this exceptionally busy period and to apologise once more to all those whose operation we had to postpone. We will seek to rearrange these as soon as we are able.

"As always, people should only attend a hospital Emergency Department in an emergency. If in doubt use the 'Health and Care Oxfordshire' app from Oxfordshire CCG to locate your nearest health provider.*

"I would like to thank all staff who are working so hard to provide care for our patients under difficult circumstances at the moment."

*The Health and Care Oxfordshire app can be downloaded from the App Store on Apple devices and the Google Play Store on Android devices.
