The new OPD, which is streets ahead of the old department, is to open on Monday.
The main entrance is located on Lynch’s Street while the wheelchair entrance can be found on Sheare’s Street directly across from three new disabled parking spaces, installed specifically for the new OPD.
The new building, spanning across two floors, will cater to consultants and nursing staff in various fields ranging from general medicine and surgery to paediatrics, haematology and cardiology.
“That’s why it was great to get a new facility which can cater to all our patients but one which is still so close to the main hospital building.
The OPD have taken on two new consultants in preparation for the new facility and they hope to add another in the field of urology at the end of 2018 or start of 2019.
