The works will be comprised of 36 bed inpatient and day case wards, an outpatients' department with 16 consulting rooms, a day case oncology department wit a 5 bed bay plus 2 individual patient rooms. Services to be provided include a diagnostic imaging department with 2 x-ray rooms, complete with mammography, MRI and CT scanners.


There also will be a physiotherapy department, staff administration department, 3 state of the art digital theatres and Endoscopy and Short Stay patient suite, alongside associated support services which include drainage, external services and external works. Work is anticipated to commence with enabling works in late January 2014 and is due to be completed in March 2015.
