The new hospital will have world class facilities for elective (non-emergency) care, diagnostics, out-patients, an urgent care centre, planned elective surgery and post-operative care, women’s services, an older person’s assessment unit and rehabilitation facilities. 

Construction work will start in the next few weeks. Enabling works to prepare the site (including demolition of unused buildings and alterations to some of the internal roads) have been ongoing since last year.
