Hospital running as normal following Norovirus outbreak

Noble's Hospital is running as normal again following an outbreak of Norovirus earlier this month.

The Department of Health and Social Care confirmed Ward 8 has now re-opened more than a week after the vomiting bug first affected services.

The outbreak, which also closed Ward 5 for a time, resulted in some elective surgery being postponed, while visitors were urged to stay away if they had experienced symptoms.

The Department is thanking the public for their understanding and support while the bug was brought under control.
