The hospital management would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank the public for their understanding and consideration. 

The Emergency Department has been experiencing a high level of attendance and admissions in recent days.  Where possible management is asking patients with non-emergency conditions to seek assistance from other parts of the health service such as their local Pharmacist, Minor Injury Clinics, GP,  or the GP out-of-hours service. Unfortunately, patients who are presenting at the Emergency Departments with non-urgent conditions may experience long waiting times to be seen.  

Any patient who needs emergency hospital care will be seen and we would urge such patients not to delay attending the ED. Do not delay in seeking medical attention if you suspect you are having a heart attack or stroke, please dial 999 or 112 in an emergency.  

We would like to remind the public if you have to attend the ED in an emergency situation please ensure: 

  • you wear a mask 
  • practice social distancing and ensure you tell the triage personnel if you have any signs/symptoms of COVID-19
