HOSPI­TAL AT CA­PAC­ITY

Eastern Courier - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Mid­dle­more Hospi­tal sent out an ur­gent no­tice to its pri­mary care col­leagues on Mon­day say­ing its oc­cu­pancy level was at 100.4 per cent due to a wide range of med­i­cal pre­sen­ta­tions. ‘‘We recognise that this is also likely to be im­pact­ing on de­mand for your ser­vices but would ap­pre­ci­ate your sup­port,’’ Mid­dle­more said. It sug­gested to care­givers that they re­view all hospi­tal re­fer­rals in­stead of send­ing pa­tients to it di­rectly, and pro­vided a con­tact list of reg­is­trars and con­sul­tants.
