This is applicable to hospital buildings and community buildings/clinics etc. We have 'stations' available at all main entrances where you can sanitise your hands and put on a hospital issued face mask. Please note that a clinical grade mask must be worn within our hospital and therefore you may be asked to change your existing mask at the main entrance. 

We appreciate your cooperation in this and thank-you for helping to keep our hospital and community settings COVID-Secure. 


Visiting at the hospital is still restricted, please review the 'visiting' area of the website for more information.
