The latest advice on visiting our hospitals

INCREASED SCREENING TO PROTECT PATIENTS AND HEALTH CARE WORKERS

28 July, 2020

We have made changes for people who are visiting our Hospitals. This is to protect our patients and staff from COVID-19.

We ask that patients are only visited by 1 designated visitor during their hospital stay.

Greater restrictions apply to areas with patients at an increased risk from infection. All visitors are asked to check with the Nurse Unit Manager or nominated officer upon arrival at the patient’s unit or ward.

We have closed some of the entrances to our Hospital buildings. Please check which entrances are open in the list below.

When you enter from these locations you will need to check in with Hospital staff who will ask you the following questions:

  • Are you experiencing flu-like symptoms (sore throat, dry cough, fever)? 
  • Have you been in contact with anyone who has COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in the last 14 days? 
  • Have you been overseas, on a cruise or in an identified area of concern in the past 14 days?

If you are showing symptoms will be asked to visit our COVID-19 clinic for assessment.
