Visitor information

The Mid North Coast Local Health District acknowledges that the wellbeing and safety of patients is enhanced by support from family, carers and close friends.  

All MNCLHD facilities now have flexible visiting times based on individual patient needs.  However, it’s important that patients are able to have adequate rest, if you wish to visit between the hours of 8pm and 7am it would be appreciated if you consult with nursing staff prior to visiting.

NSW Health has restricted access to hospitals and health care facilities where vulnerable patients receive care to no more than two visitors per patient at any one time, to minimise the spread of COVID-19. 

Everyone who enters our hospitals and healthcare facilities needs to undergo health screening. We have QR code registration at each site and you will be asked a series of questions such as whether you have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19, your recent travel and whether you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, you will also have your temperature checked.

Please note this QR code does not work from the Service NSW app. Use your mobile device’s camera or a QR code app. 

Visitors from areas of increased surveillance (hotspots) will not be permitted into our health facilities although anyone needing medical assistance will be seen, regardless of where they have travelled from.

Help reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection by staying 1.5 metres away from other people where possible and avoiding close contact with people you do not live with. 

Hospital visitors are not required to wear a mask unless you are unable to physically distance from other people.

We request that you wear a mask if you are presenting for COVID-19 testing or if you have acute respiratory illness.

Visit NSW Gov to learn how to correctly put on, wear, and dispose of your face mask.
