Norovirus contained at Noble's

Ward 5 open, operations to go ahead

A viral outbreak at Noble's Hospital has been effectively limited, according to bosses.

Ward 5 has now re-opened to admissions, after no new cases of norovirus were identified in the last 72 hours.

Ward 8, meanwhile, remains closed as a precaution.

Patients who'd been warned to expect their operations cancelled are now being told all elective surgery should be going ahead as planned tomorrow.

The public are still being reminded not to visit the hospital if they've suffered from stomach bug symptoms in the previous three days - or been in close quarters with someone who has.

They're also being urged to stay away from A&E with symptoms of vomiting and diarrhoea.
