It will re-open to the public on August 18th
The emergency department at the Devon General Hospital will reopen to the public on August 18th.
The ER was temporarily closed to new patients on April 20th, a move to help protect the hospitals long term care residents.
New measures are in place to ensure the residents continued safety, including a temporary barrier between the ER and the rest of the hospital.
On August 18th the ER will be open from 10am-8pm seven days a week and will eventually return to 24 hour service
