The hospital’s management has indicated that it has relocated certain services to unaffected areas of the facility.

Officials at the health ministry met yesterday morning to discuss the problem and identify possible solutions.

Tufton is set to tour the facility today and host a press conference at 1 o’clock.

The health ministry says he will tour sections of the hospital and other sites where services have been relocated.
