Temporary changes in entry and exit due to COVID-19

To help protect our staff and patients from COVID-19, we are reducing the number of entrances for patients and visitors entering some of our facilities.

Visitors and outpatients at Manning Base Hospital will now access the facility via the ramp from the car parks. All visitors and patients will be screened before entry to the hospital. There is no access through the main entrance.
