A major water leak at University Maternity Hospital Limerick has impaired phone lines and external communications.
On Tuesday morning, a major water leak caused a disruption to communication systems at UMHL. Maintenance teams are on site at the hospital, working to restore all impacted communications as soon as possible, a spokesperson for UL Hospitals Group told The Clare Echo.
External communications have been impaired, including phone lines for the Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit and the Maternity Emergency Unit.
Women who need to contact the hospital in advance, or those who need to access the EPAU/MEU, are advised to use the temporary alternative phone lines on 061-327300; 061-327455; 061-327238; 061-327450.
All other services are unaffected, and any woman with an appointment today are advised to attend as normal.
