Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust continues to take all necessary precautions to protect patients and staff during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and with the current situation in the local Warrington area we want to reassure our patients and visitors that our hospitals are safe environments.

As we make arrangements to re-start services we are making changes to reduce the risk of spreading the virus by reducing access points to our hospitals – Warrington Hospital, Halton Hospital and Cheshire and Merseyside Treatment Centre.

NHS COVID -19 App

To support the COVID-19 response we are now providing QR codes at a number of locations in our hospitals to allow patients and any permitted visitors attending outpatient appointments to use the ‘check-in’ feature on the NHS COVID-19 app.

This feature is designed to slow the spread of the virus by providing vital information that would support contract tracers should users contract COVID-19. QR code posters will be displayed in our main clinic waiting areas and communal areas.

To scan the QR codes, users simply need to download the NHS COVID-19 app from either the App Store or Google Play. Find out more here:
