Non-urgent elective surgery postponed
As directed by NSW Health, non-urgent elective surgery will be temporarily postponed at all public hospitals in Greater Sydney, excluding the Illawarra Shoalhaven and Central Coast Local Health Districts, from Monday, 2 August.
All emergency surgery and urgent elective surgery will continue, without delay. Our staff are contacting families impacted by this change, to discuss their child’s specific case.
This measure was previously implemented in March 2020 and will ensure hospitals across the state have the resources and capacity to respond to the current COVID-19 outbreak.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this changing time.
