Corona virus: Information for patients and further information

The protection of our patients, who often suffer from serious illnesses, is just as important to us as the protection of our employees, who ensure the treatment and care of our patients. We do everything we can to provide maximum care for our patients, so please observe the following rules at the NCT Heidelberg and Heidelberg University Hospital (UKHD) to minimize the risk of SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) infection.

Please do not enter the NCT if you are ill with Covid-19 or have had contact with COVID-19 ill persons. In this case, please contact the NCT by telephone only.

For patients who are currently already oncologically connected and would like to present themselves for a second opinion at the NCT Heidelberg, there may be occasional delays due to the current situation (corona). We ask for your understanding.

Outpatient clinic

  • Patients in the outpatient clinic may bring a maximum of one accompanying person.

  • An accompanying person may be brought along to consultations in the consulting room of the day clinics if the patient requires an assistant in the preliminary discussion before the therapy is given (e.g. interpreter), or if it is a discussion about further therapy planning (staging discussion).
