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.
