FOLLOWING a meeting this morning of the UHK COVID-19 committee at University Hospital Kerry, the hospital has decided to cancel all non- time critical elective surgery from tomorrow (Tuesday).

The hospital says this measure is necessary in the interests of patient safety and has been taken in the context of the current public health emergency due to coronavirus.

All affected patients will be contacted by the hospital today. Strict Visitor restrictions are already in place at the hospital due to Infection Control concerns.

In a statement on their facebook page, University Hospital Kerry wishes to thank the public for their patience and support at this time and apologise for any inconvenience caused to patients. The hospital will continue to review this decision and keep the public updated.
