The safety and wellbeing of our patients, visitors, staff, medical specialists, and contractors is always our utmost priority. We have always had very thorough cleaning, hygiene and health and safety processes in our hospital. We have dedicated infection prevention and health and safety experts advising and monitoring our practices. We’ve also put in place even more cleaning and sanitising, focusing on high touch surfaces, and we have hand sanitisers installed throughout the hospital for our staff, patients and visitors.
We’re following the Ministry of Health’s guidelines around hand-washing, cough etiquette, social distancing and hygiene practices, and have reinforced this with all our teams. If you are unwell, please do not enter the hospital. Contact your GP.
As a hospital, we are considered an essential service and we will be remaining open during these difficult times.
