RLI Services To Resume As Normal

Services at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary are scheduled to return to normal on Wednesday - with the exception of some outpatient services.

All elective surgeries at the hospital are due to take place as planned, but RLI clinics will be limited due to power stability.

Outpatient clinics at the Queen Victoria Hospital have been cancelled due to power outage concerns.

All staff are being asked to come to work as normal.

A spokesperson from University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, said, “Whilst the recent storm has caused major disruption to Lancashire and Cumbria, the hospitals within UHMBT are coping as well as can be expected.

“We would like to take this opportunity remind patients to only use the hospital’s Emergency Departments in the event of an emergency so that our staff can continue to focus on those seriously ill patients that need urgent attention.

"For patients that do use the hospital services, please can you remember to bring any prescription medication with you. For those patients who receive home care services involving medication that must be refrigerated, and have been affected by the power cut, please call your Home Care Provider helpline number.

“We’d like to thank everyone for their continued support.”

If you have an appointment in the morning at the following clinics, please attend:

- The Thyroid rapid access
- ENT appointments with Mr M Mian
- Maxillofacial 1-stop clinic

All other Maxillofacial, ENT and audiology clinics are cancelled.

Cardiology services will be running as normal at the RLI.
