Expect longer wait at hospital

The Ministry of Health and Wellness is advising that members of the public are to expect a longer than normal wait time at hospitals.

This, the ministry said in a press release yesterday, is as a result of the increasing number of patients requiring care at accident and emergency (A&E) departments. The ministry, along with the four regional health authorities responsible for the operation of the island's public hospitals, is working to ensure that the triage system is optimised, and that additional customer care personnel are deployed in the A&E waiting areas to address the concerns of patients and provide the necessary updates.

The ministry further asked that members of the public exercise patience during this time and crave understanding, as healthcare professionals work to ensure the best health outcome for all.
