Resuming health and care services in Fife
NHS Fife is beginning to resume some services that have been suspended, delayed, or deferred due to coronavirus (COVID-19), whilst continuing to protect emergency, urgent, and maternity care. This will be done on a phased basis over the coming weeks and months.
Not all health services will be able resume immediately or be able to return to normal working arrangements due to the ongoing need to maintain separate areas to treat patients with Covid-19.
Physical distancing and infection control measures to protect patients and staff will limit the number of people who can attend at any one time and reduce previous service capacity.
A number of updates on specific services, including the resumption of orthopaedic surgery cataract procedures at Queen Margaret Hospital, National Screening Programmes and dental services, can be found here.
