In line with national advice, we are making some changes at Wairarapa Hospital that you need to know about.
This includes only ONE visitor per patient and no children under 12, and we will be delaying some appointments for our most at risk people. PLEASE READ

We are rescheduling planned surgery or clinic appointments. We apologise for the inconvenience, but it is important we keep our most vulnerable safe, and out of the hospital environment wherever possible.

We will also be enforcing visitor restrictions at the hospital. In the interests of minimising any possible spread, only ONE visitor per patient will be allowed. No children under the age of 12 may visit, and the visiting hours of 2pm – 8pm apply.

People coming into the hospital will see some change to the entrance, as we now have a single point of entry.

People entering the hospital will be screened – this may include answering some health questions, having their temperature taken, and being required to provide name address and contact details on entry. People will not be allowed access into the hospital unless they meet the screening criteria.

When in the hospital, we ask that you maintain 2m physical distancing at all times; including in waiting areas, the cafeteria, and when visiting in the wards.

Thank you for your understanding and support as we work to keep our staff and patients safe.
