Corona virus covid-19

We kindly ask you not to visit the hospital if you have a cough, fever, sore throat or other symptoms of a respiratory infection.

Hospital entrances locked

Due to the spreading of the coronavirus, NU-sjukvården has locked the hospital entrances. Only visitors who have passed the check point at the main entrance will be let in. Emergency visits are refered to the emergency room at NÄL i Trollhättan. 

No visitors permitted without an agreement

No visitors are permitted, neither for visiting patients nor accompanying patients with an appointment, unless it has been authorized by the ward/clinic. 

Exceptions may be given for patients who require help, but only one (1) family member/caregiver is permitted.

Other exceptions may also be given. Please contact the ward/clinic for further information before your visit.

(Note: You have to change language at the top of the webpage to see the English version of NU-sjukvården's website.)

Furthermore, NU-sjukvården is keeping the health care wards locked.

Theese restrictions apply at NÄL, as well as Uddevalla hospital and Brinkåsen.

Patients who have a scheduled appointment

Please note that patients who have a scheduled appointment and do not receive any other information, are welcome to the hospital, provided they have no symptoms of respiratory infection.
