A highly skilled nursing and support team with sub-specialities in colorectal, upper gastrointestinal, breast, vascular and urology.
Our general surgery division works from a bed base of 89 beds across four ward areas, offering care from a highly skilled nursing and support team. The general surgery directorate undertakes the following surgical sub specialities:
- colorectal (bowels)
- upper gastrointestinal
- vascular (heart)
- urology (urinary-tract system and the reproductive organs)
We have a surgical admissions unit which helps to streamline the patient journey for all our elective surgical patients by improving admission and discharge arrangements in a more conducive environment for patients before and after their surgery.
We have a team of ten permanent senior medical personnel who provide this support with the help of middle and junior grade doctors, specialist nurses, and highly trained administrative support.
