Media Statement - South Tipperary General Hospital regarding Oncology Day Services - Wednesday 15th April 2020

Management at South Tipperary General Hospital can confirm that it has temporarily relocated its Oncology Day Ward to Aut Even Hospital in Kilkenny, effective from 15th April. Oncology staff will be contacting patients directly regarding their appointments. This measure was undertaken to maximise the protection of vulnerable patients from Covid-19, whilst maintaining this essential service as safely as possible.

Management at STGH would like to apologise for any inconvenience this relocation may cause. These measures have been in the interest of patient safety.

In an additional measure, STGH Management can confirm that the Department has also spread out appointment times for those patients who do need to attend hospital for treatment to comply with social distancing.
