Scheduled hospital services including surgery, endoscopy and outpatient appointments are being phased in at UL Hospital Group sites, which includes Nenagh Hospital, as the rate of community transmission of Covid-19 continues to decline from its peak in mid-January.
A significant number of healthcare workers have returned to work after Covid-19-related absences, allowing the Group to begin a gradual return of services, at a slow and steady pace, at University Hospital Limerick (UHL) , Ennis, Nenagh and St John’s and Croom Orthopedic Hospital.
UL Hospitals Group is committed to ensuring that all patients whose appointments were rescheduled during the New Year’s surge of COVID-19 are rescheduled as soon as possible. Urgent cases remain a priority and the hospital contacts patients directly about their new appointments as soon as they are scheduled.
Theater rosters resumed at UHL, St John’s, Ennis, Nenagh and Croom orthopedic hospitals. Hospital outpatient services are also working towards a full recovery, in connection with the redeployment of any staff transferred elsewhere in the group during the Covid-19 surge.
