St Helena : St Helena OUTPATIENT CLINICS Update
Submitted by Saint Helena Herald (Nathan Prince) 09.07.2014 (Current Article)

The Health & Social Welfare Directorate announced on Monday (7 July) that due to a current number of very serious inpatient cases, the General Hospital would be unable to offer general Outpatient Services until tomorrow (10 July 2014).

OUTPATIENT CLINICS

Update on Services This Week

The Health & Social Welfare Directorate announced on Monday (7 July) that due to a current number of very serious inpatient cases, the General Hospital would be unable to offer general Outpatient Services until tomorrow (10 July 2014).

The situation has been kept under review and as a result, Outpatient Services will be unavailable until next Monday, 14 July. This includes the Nurse-led clinics in various districts. Outpatient Services will resume on Monday morning.
This small number of critical cases require intensive medical nursing care from both doctors and nurses. These cases demand 24-hour care, together with the associated staff resources. This burden is on top of the normal number of residual inpatients at the Hospital, and existing outpatients, such as expectant mothers.

Those with existing appointments before Monday are currently being contacted to rearrange. Emergency cases should be reported in the normal way and will be dealt with.

The situation will be kept under review, with any changes announced. The Health & Social Welfare Directorate again thanks the public for its understanding, and the Hospital recognises the dedication of Health Service staff in meeting the demands of the current situation.
