Our advice for clinicians on the coronavirus is here.
If you are a member of the public looking for information and advice about coronavirus (COVID-19), including information about the COVID-19 vaccine, go to the NHS website. You can also find guidance and support on the GOV.UK website.
Highly specialised services are provided to a smaller number of patients compared to specialised services, usually no more than 500 patients a year. These are services for very rare and/or complex condition. Because of the small number of patients the services are provided in a limited number of hospitals which enables the clinicians to maintain their expertise.
