"This is to allow for work to be completed in some of our theaters and recovery wards at the Department of Surgery that are being rehabilitated and re-equipped to improve the quality of care."

Emergency cases will, however, be attended to “after prior arrangements are made in respect of such cases”.

Non-emergency cases have been referred to other hospitals within the metropolis.
