ST JAMES’S HOSPITAL is currently experiencing an outbreak of influenza with limits being placed on visitors.

Family and friends of patients have been asked to stay away from the Dublin hospital for all non-essential visits.

The hospital says visiting is being restricted in the interest of patient safety.

Only one person is allowed to visit at a time and no children will be admitted.

The hospital added that certain wards may need to be closed to all except specially approved compassionate visiting but that this will be kept to a minimum.

People with flu-like symptoms are reminded to attend or phone their GP in the first instance.
