Changes to visiting arrangements come into effect from today, at Sligo University Hospital.
The changes are in line with national guidance.
The hospital is facilitating one visitor per inpatient each day. Visiting times are from 6 pm to 8 pm daily.
The visits must be pre-arranged by family members or visitors, who should contact the relevant ward or Unit in advance.
Since the start of this month(June), Mayo University Hospital has been facilitating visits to patients in the ward areas by appointment. Appointments are staggered across all ward areas each day from 2pm to 4pm.
There is one visit per patient at any given time at the Castlebar hospital and each visit can last up to 30 minutes.
