Testing and screening 

 If you are a patient or client being cared for by our hospitals or services you will need to follow current testing requirements. Visitors to our sites also need to get screened and may need to get tested.



If you have an upcoming hospital admission your doctor or health care professional will let you know about any testing requirements ahead of your appointment. 

For more information about COVID-19 and testing, see:


Visitors may be asked to provide a negative rapid antigen test (RAT) result if visiting a high risk area, e.g. transplant ward, haematology unit, oncology ward, renal dialysis unit). Your RAT should be undertaken prior to each visit.
