Trudie Davies, Chief Operating Officer at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust said:
“Our deepest condolences are with the Royal Family following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
“After much consideration, we have taken the decision to remain operational for Monday’s public bank holiday. Therefore, appointments and procedures will continue as planned at Pinderfields, Dewsbury and Pontefract hospitals and in community services. If there are any circumstances where a clinic or appointment does need to be cancelled, patients will be contacted directly. Should patients wish to rearrange their appointment, we ask that they contact us as soon as possible, in advance.
“We are extremely grateful for the support of our compassionate colleagues and healthcare partners who are making it possible for us to continue to provide the level of care that our patients deserve, whilst respecting the grieving process for our Queen.”
