SLHD - Visiting has changed

RPAH - Pain Management Centre

For now, NSW Health is asking the public not to visit healthcare facilities.

We know this is a worrying time. This is a temporary measure, to protect patients, staff and the community from COVID-19.

We encourage you to use technology, where possible, to check in with loved ones. Patients are able to access free WiFi in our facilities.

There are some exceptional circumstances where a visitor will be considered on compassionate grounds such as maternity, paediatric including NICU, or palliative care.

If you would like to ask for an exemption to the current visitor restrictions — contact the Nurse Unit Manager for the relevant ward, via the hospital switchboard:

Balmain Hospital switchboard (02) 9395 2111
Canterbury Hospital switchboard (02) 9787 0000
Concord Hospital switchboard (02) 9767 5000
RPA Hospital switchboard (02) 9515 6111
Sydney Dental switchboard (02) 9293 3200

If you are a current patient receiving care (including as an outpatient), please talk to your treating team about your individual circumstances for entering the hospital.

If you are entering the hospital you must:

COVID-19 testing
If you have even mild symptoms, don't come to the hospital. Get tested straight away and self-isolate until you get a negative result.

COVID-19 vaccinations
To get a COVID-19 vaccine, book an appointment via the COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Checker.
