Dublin Midlands Hospital Group - Press Release 2018

Dublin Midlands Hospital Group incorporates the Midland Regional Hospitals at Tullamore, Portlaoise & Naas, Tallaght Hospital, St James’s Hospital, St. Lukes Radiation Oncology Network and the Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital.

The Dublin Midlands Hospital Group wishes to advise the public that outpatients will run as normal in all Hospitals tomorrow, Monday 5th of March.

We would ask patients to only attend if it is safe for them to travel. If you are unable to attend please call the contact number on your appointment letter tomorrow to inform the Hospital.

For appointments cancelled last Thursday and Friday the hospitals will contact patients to reschedule appointments. As previously advised, the events of last week will have an impact on service provision for the week ahead and Hospitals have been reviewing planned elective activity. Please note all non urgent elective activity is deferred and will be reviewed on a daily basis. Hospitals will contact patients directly to reschedule appointments as appropriate.

Hospitals continued to care for patients despite the extraordinary weather conditions affecting access to and access from Hospitals.

The Hospital Group would like to acknowledge all staff who went above and beyond to continue patient care and the support of the National Ambulance Service, Defence Forces and Civil Defence in assisting with emergency transportation of patients and staff.

Hospitals have been busy and will continue to be in the coming days, particularly ED activity. We would encourage people to consider all options available to them for their healthcare needs and to protect the ED for those most seriously ill as delays can still be expected.
