'Operational problems' delay access to Hallamshire Hospital

Patients have had problems accessing the Hallamshire Hospital this morning due to an "operational problem" which left staff unable to open some entrances and the multi-storey car park.

The hospital says it is working to resolve the issues and hopes to be able to reopen the car park soon.

We have had an operational problem this morning which has meant some entrances to the Hallamanshire Hospital have not been able to be opened at the usual time. This also includes the multi storey car park. We have people resolving the problem and some areas have already been opened and the car park should be open shortly. We apologise for the dispruption to traffice flow and patients this has temporarily caused. The problem will not cause any care to be cancelled. We will be ensuring measures are taken to ensure this does not happen again.
