Information about our response to the CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19)

VISITING RESTRICTIONS

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 in the community, all visits to patients have been suspended with immediate effect.

This decision has been taken in the interest of patient safety and staff safety, which remains our primary concern.

Patients attending for admission or out patient appointments should only be dropped off and collected. Children are not permitted unless attending as a patient.

Those requiring assistance may be accompanied by one person.

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

At this time, we must all work together in the national interest.
