Bradley welcomes final stages of Daisy Hill redevelopment

SDLP MLA for Newry and Armagh Dominic Bradley has welcomed an announcement that the third and final stage of redevelopment of the Emergency Department at Daisy Hill Hospital is underway.

Speaking to Newry Times, Bradley said, “I am delighted to hear that steady progress is being made to ensure that the much needed modernisation of Daisy Hill Hospital is completed in a timely and efficient fashion.

“People living in the area will soon have access to state of the art treatment facilities when the work is completed and this is very welcome. I understand there will be a new central nurse’s station, a relatives’ room and new improved waiting room. This will be great news for patients and their families.

Bradley continued, “During the development process we have already seen new treatment areas and better facilities for treating children. I want to pay tribute to those involved in seeing this work through.

“With completion stage very close I look forward to seeing the Hospital operating with new and improved facilities which puts patient care and treatment first.”

“Whilst it is good to see progress being made I am disappointed that the hydro-pool which provides therapy for patients with complex physical needs has not been fully refurbished. This work was to be completed early this year and I have asked senior trust officials for reasons for the delay. This is a much needed facility.

He added, “In the interim patients requiring this treatment have had to travel to Craigavon Hospital to avail of therapy. I will continue to lobby the trust until work on the hydro-pool is finally completed.”
