Coronavirus and elective operating


Private hospital operations:   Back to normal at both Gosford Private and Tuggerah Lakes Private

The public hospital system is back to normal with elective surgery, but waiting lists are still behind due to the backlog formed during COVID.


We are following NSW health guidelines for mask wearing which includes wearing mask whilst in our rooms.
