Cancer surgery is still happening, even in the current environment.
The Royal Surrey County Hospital urology department has set up a Covid-free zone.
Patients are asked to isolate at home for one week before surgery. They are given a Corona virus test 48 hours prior and a chest X-ray 24 hours before their op.
All clinical staff are given weekly Coronavirus tests.
The unit expects to be up to 80% of its pre-plague capacity within a few days.
It is unfortunate that this regimen is not yet replicated throughout the NHS...
