From Monday 27th July Ospadal Uibhist agus Bharraigh in Balivanich will request that where patients can have their clothes collected and washed at home, this should be done.
This was standard practice prior to the lockdown period.
Each hospital patient will be asked whether their Designated Visitor (or other family member/carer) will be able to uplift clothes requiring laundry.
"We thank you in advance for your cooperation with this." says NHS Western Isles.
