A highly skilled nursing and support team with sub-specialities in colorectal, upper gastrointestinal, breast, vascular and urology.

Three surgeons at work.

Healthcare provided

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
  • breast
  • 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.
