Health officials say they have suspended admissions to Deeside Hospital’s Gladstone ward due to new ‘possible’ cases being admitted.

Three wards at Wrexham Maelor Hospital are also closed to admissions; three wards currently have partial restrictions.
Health officials say staff at Wrexham Maelor Hospital continue to ask people to help support efforts to control the current outbreak of Norovirus by not coming to the hospital if they have had diarrhoea or vomiting in the previous 2 days.
However patients do continue to come into our emergency department because they have diarrhoea or have been vomiting. Unless people have other underlying health problems, Norovirus is not a condition that needs hospital attention.
There is no treatment for the illness; although the symptoms are unpleasant people will generally make a full recovery within a few days. The best advice during this time is for people to stay at home, keep drinking fluids so they don’t get dehydrated, and to telephone their GP or NHS Direct for further advice.
Advice should always be sought from a doctor for more vulnerable people such as the very young, the elderly or people with other health conditions such as diabetes.
