Health services begin phased return as lockdown lifts

Staggered restoration of pre-lockdown levels of service

Health services, which had been suspended over the latest lockdown, are to begin a phased return from today (19 April).

The Island has officially exited its third lockdown - marking 21 days without an unexplained case of Covid-19 in the community.

Services affected are elective surgery, face to face consultations, outpatient clinics and mental health appointments. 

Health visiting, school nursing, midwifery and therapies provided in the community are also due return to pre-lockdown levels of service.

The department says services will be restored 'when it is safe and practical to do so with some making a full return on Monday and others being phased in gradually over the next week.'
