Thank you for planning your visit to our healthcare facilities.

We appreciate your support as we continue to take precautions to protect our patients and our community.

Visitors are welcome in our hospitals – as long as they are 12 years or over – and are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Visitors are limited to 2 per day per patient.

There are some exceptional circumstances where more visitors 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:

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.

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

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.
