Changes to services at St Albans City Hospital

We have strict visiting restrictions in place to minimise the risk of visitors bringing infection into our hospitals and to minimise the risk of visitors becoming infected and transmitting the infection to the community.

The Minor Injuries Unit at St Albans City Hospital remains closed until further notice. This is to allow the hospital to focus on providing planned (pre-booked) care including outpatients, diagnostics, cancer and surgical services.

A new mobile CT scanner is being installed. This is a dedicated green scanner for non COVID-19 patients and will support a wide range of outpatient and surgical pathways being delivered from St Albans.

We aim to also provide an MRI scanner at St Albans later this year.
