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