Miri hospital postpones all specialist services

MIRI: Miri Hospital is postponing all services at its specialist clinics from tomorrow (Jan 18) until Friday (Jan 22) except complex cases which cannot be delayed.

“The specialist clinics will contact affected patients to reschedule appointments. In-patient services are still operating as usual,” it stated.

Patients with queries about appointments are advised to contact the relevant clinic at telephone numbers on their appointment cards.

The hospital management appealed for cooperation and apologised any inconvenience caused. Those who need to go to the hospital are reminded to adhere strictly with standard operating procedures.
