Covid-19 Update

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the hospital is constantly updating measures put in place to safeguard patients, staff, and visitors accordingly. Therefore, we urge you to continuously check with us for updates. In line with these updates, patients continue to receive one visitor per day (registered next of kin ONLY) for 30 minutes. However, only visitors with SURGICAL MASKS will be allowed within patient areas. Please refer to the visiting hours page for the revised visiting times.
