To protect you and your loved ones, Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) hospital visitor hours will change from this Thursday, August 20.

One visitor per patient will be allowed to visit each day between 10am-12 midday and 5-7pm at Westmead, Blacktown, Mount Druitt and Auburn hospitals.

Special considerations will apply for carers and birthing, and on compassionate grounds in areas such as intensive care and palliative care.

Free WiFi is available to all patients at our hospitals, making it easy for family members to virtually connect with patients and maintain important social connection without any risk.

Families and carers are also welcome to call our friendly staff to check in on the status of their loved one.

WSLHD chief executive Graeme Loy said the temporary change was being implemented due to ongoing community transmission of COVID-19 in Western Sydney.

“The safety of our staff, patients and visitors is our number one concern. This step is necessary at this time and will be reviewed as the situation changes,” Graeme said.

“We appreciate this is a difficult change and want to thank people in advance for their co-operation.

“Social workers are available as always to support and provide tips to patients who may have questions about connecting with their family and friends while in our care.

“Thank you for helping us save lives.”

Staff, patients and visitors are required to wear masks at all of our health care facilities for the protection of themselves and others.

Please observe hand hygiene and physical distancing, and do not visit anyone in hospital if you are feeling unwell.
