New hospital will network strongly with Altnagelvin

THE new South West Acute Hospital in Enniskillen will ‘network strongly’ with Altnagelvin and Craigavon, according to the Health Minister Edwin Poots.

Asked how ‘Transforming Your Care’ will affect services at the new facility Mr Poots stated: “With regard to the South West Acute Hospital, the consultation document’s key proposals are that the hospital will reflect the needs of its population areas including the dispersed rural population and provide all general hospital services.

“The hospital would network strongly with both Altnagelvin Area Hospital and Craigavon Area Hospital.”
