The public is hereby advised that the Accident and Emergency Department of the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital is temporarily closed.
As a result, persons seeking emergency care should attend the Kingstown District Clinic until further notice.
Visiting hours at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital for this afternoon have also been suspended until further notice.
This is anticipated to be a temporary measure.
Attempts to seek clarity from the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment as to why this measure has been taken, have not availed.
