Hospitals will operate under the overarching advice of the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET), the HSE and the DoH. Information is available at:
The NCCP has defined a number of principles to underpin the delivery of cancer care, where this needs to be delivered outside of cancer centres or the usual designated place of care. These are outlined on the NCCP website at: https://www.hse.ie/eng/services/list/5/cancer/profinfo/covid-19.html
These recommendations will be reviewed on an ongoing basis as the impact of the pandemic evolves.
