  Patient Information  

In the event of the Hospital being notified of an emergency situation during visiting time, all visitors will be asked to leave the Hospital by the main lobby.   

The Hospital has a well prepared emergency response plan, and must clear non-Hospital personnel quickly in order to put this plan into effect.  In such circumstances, your cooperation will be appreciated


Patient Rights  & Responsibility


All patients admitted to the Hospital have the right to be told the reason for their admission and the risks and benefits associated with any treatment.    The Hospital will strive to ensure that this information is provided in a language that the patient can understand.

Patients are asked to note that Hospital staff have significant responsibilities and sometimes it may be necessary to wait until the doctor or nurse has finished dealing with something that may have a higher priority.   We appreciate your patience in such cases.  

Outpatient Appointments

Please attend for your outpatient appointment on time.   If you are late for an appointment you may have to wait until the doctor is free or until the end of the clinic.   If you cannot attend, please contact the Hospital as soon as possible so that the appointment can be reassigned to another patient
