Mercy University Hospital Status Update, 4th January, 2022

Due to the rapid increase in the number of patients with confirmed Covid-19 being admitted to hospitals and the projected trend in admissions based upon community transmission levels, Mercy University Hospital have deferred non-time dependent services including inpatient, day case and outpatient services.  Emergency and urgent time sensitive procedures and care will continue to be provided and the situation is under continual review.
 

SPECIFICALLY:

OUTPATIENT CLINICS

The Outpatient department continues to run essential face to face clinics, taking into account infection control and public health guidance. Some patient consultations are now taking place via telephone and/or video calls.

Please attend your outpatient clinic appointment unless the Hospital contacts you directly to arrange otherwise.

To ensure patient safety and to comply with social distancing, please do not arrive early for your appointment but arrive on time.

Patients are asked not to visit the hospital for an outpatient appointment if they have symptoms of Covid-19 and to instead contact their GP

 

INPATIENTS/DAY CASES

Elective and day case procedures will continue for emergency and urgent, time sensitive procedures and care, taking into account infection control and public health guidance. Patients will be contacted directly by the hospital regarding admission.

Please do not attend your inpatient or day case procedure appointment unless the hospital contacts you directly and provides you with a specific appointment.
