The Princess of Wales Hospital has been forced to suspend a number of services due to a water supply interruption.
In a public safety announcement, released earlier today, the hospital said that a burst water main in the Ely era has led to the interruption.
A number of services are currently unable to treat patients until the water supply is restored. These include: outpatient appointments, musculo-skeletal services and x-ray services.
Additionally, any patients in need of the minor injury unit will be redirected to 111 or 999, although clinical staff are available if there is a medical emergency.
Meanwhile, inpatient services on Welney inpatient ward continue to operate as normal.
