Water supply statement

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust is currently experiencing problems with its water supply due to a mains leak off site.  We are urging patients not to attend these hospitals for the time being unless there is an urgent clinical need.

The hospitals affected are Manchester Royal Infirmary, Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, Saint Mary’s Hospital, and Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

We are cancelling all operations planned for tomorrow morning as a precaution, apart from cancer and any urgent operations.  We will be endeavouring to contact all patients affected this evening.  These operations will be rescheduled as soon as possible. 

All outpatient services will be running as usual on Monday, so please attend your appointment as planned.

We would like to thank all patients and staff for their co-operation at this time.
