On the designated Bank Holiday, Monday 19th September, when the State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II takes place, the South Eastern HSC Trust will be operating enhanced bank holiday services in order to reduce the impact on patients and service users as much as possible.

Priority will be given to patients with the greatest clinical need.

Hospital Emergency Departments and Urgent Care Centres will be open as normal.

In addition, South Eastern Trust staff will be seeking to maintain:

• Urgent Red Flag outpatient appointments
• Day case and inpatient surgery
• Diagnostics and scopes
• Time critical services such as Chemotherapy.

If a patient’s care is affected, then they will be contacted by the Trust.

A postponed appointment will be rescheduled as soon as possible.
