Update Statement from Dr. Clare Faul Network Director ST Luke’s Radiation oncology network ( SLRON)
All outpatient appointments continue to be cancelled until further notice at St Luke’s Hospital and the two centers on the Beaumont and St James hospital campuses.
We are continuing to treat emergency radiation patients in the private sector. At present we have some but not all of our radiation machines available for patient treatment. We are prioritizing time-dependent patients and paediatric patients for treatment in SLRON this week.
Patients will be contacted directly by our staff about their appointments.
To reassure patients routine radiation treatments can be temporarily interrupted safely without negatively impacting on their outcome.
If you feel unwell or have symptoms, please contact the hospital at 01 406 5000.
