Temporary relocation for SFGH Emergency Department entrance

The entrance to the Emergency Department at the San Fernando General Hospital has been temporarily relocated.

This as cleaning works take place at the hospital this weekend.

The South-West Regional Health Authority (SWRHA) said it has partnered with the Trinidad and Tobago Fire Service (TTFS) to conduct exterior cleaning works at the San Fernando General Hospital from on Saturday and Sunday.

During the cleaning of the exterior of the SFGH extension wing earlier on Saturday an incident with the TTFS vehicle occurred halting the cleaning works and use of the vehicle. Additional Fire Service officials were immediately on-site to assess and rectify the situation.

As a result, the SWRHA advised that patient access to the entrance of the Emergency Department (ED) has been temporarily redirected to the adjacent Ambulance Bay until further advised by the TTFS.
