The £24 million facility contains four state-of-the-art theatres, plus an assessment and recovery area, and has been designed using the latest principles for safe and streamlined care.
As well as helping to tackle waiting list challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the centre also reduces the amount of time patients need to spend in hospital, allowing them to recuperate and rest in the comfort of their own home.
Operations provided include: cartilage and joint repairs for knees and hips, injections to manage pain, treatment for bladder and kidney problems, hernias and minor plastic surgery.
Located at the front right of the Freeman Hospital site, the centre is signposted from the main car park entrance.
There are dedicated drop off and pick up spaces – with limited waiting time – near the entrance to the centre.
Outside of these spaces, the usual car parking charges apply.
