Staying In Touch With Patients
Where family is not yet able to visit, we encourage you to contact patients via mobile phone; alternatively, phone the hospital and request to speak to him/her. Direct relatives will be updated on the condition of the patient by our staff. Please be assured that we will do our utmost to make patients feel as comfortable and safe as possible and to keep you in virtual contact with him/her to the best of our ability.
Please note that there may be changes to these general visiting hours at a locality level, and we advise you to visit the specific hospital page or contact the facility for further details.
