Emergency department and visitor updates
We are experiencing a high volume of patients that need care. If you are coming to the emergency department, care is prioritized based on need and the team will see you as soon as possible; be prepared to wait if your issue is not urgent. Please be patient and kind with our team members.
Know where to go. If your issue isn't urgent, there are other options available to you.
1. MASKS are still required in hospital buildings at all times - no food or drink when visiting, please.
2. Do not visit if you are ill.
3. Sanitize your hands often.
