Visitor restrictions in place

There’s an increased amount of sickness among tamariki in our community, with a high rate of respiratory (breathing-related) viruses.

To help prevent the spread of infection within our hospital, we are restricting the number of tamariki and whānau visiting Starship and Women's Health.

Remember, if anyone needs urgent medical treatment, do not delay seeking help. If it is an emergency call 111 immediately or go to your nearest emergency department.
