Oamaru Hospital: Emergency Department temporary closure Monday 31 July 2023 - 5PM - 28th Jul 2023


Oamaru Hospital will be temporarily closing its Emergency Department and restricting inpatient access from 5pm Monday 31 July 2023. This is due to doctor shortages.

The community is advised to call 111 in an emergency. For non-urgent care, patients can contact the on-call GP service (03 434 9444).

Patients requiring an admission will be transferred to Dunedin Hospital during this time.

We expect the Emergency Department will be operational again from 08:00 on Tuesday 1 August.
