Management of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH)  is implementing measures to limit crowding in the outpatient clinics in light of the February 3 to 17 national pause to combat coronavirus (COVID-19).

As a result, some appointments may be postponed, according to a media statement.

“Outpatients whose appointments have been postponed will be contacted by a member of their treatment team or the Medical Records Department for the purpose of scheduling a new appointment date.

“Outpatients who are not contacted are asked to present to their respective clinics as scheduled, and to arrive at the QEH no earlier than 30 minutes before their scheduled appointment time,” the statement said.

The public is reminded that only the following may be accompanied by one person:

Minors – children under the age of 18.

Elderly, who are at high risk of falling.

People who are visually impaired.

Those who require assistance with regular day-to-day activities such as going to the bathroom or who may be disoriented.

In relation to prescriptions and refills, contact the QEH Help Desk at 536-4800 or visit (PR)
