The first phase of work to make way for the new paediatric centre at Daisy Hill Hospital will begin on site on Monday 7th March. DHH 3The new paediatric centre is part of an overall plan to modernise hospital services for children and young people across the Southern Trust with all planned paediatric surgery for the area being centralised in Daisy Hill Hospital. This first stage of works will make way for the new custom designed Paediatric Centre on the sixth floor of the hospital which will involve extensive movement of staff and services to other floors and buildings. Welcoming the new development, Director of Children and Young People for the Southern Health and Social Care Trust, Paul Morgan said, “We are delighted to start working on these plans which we have been developing since our public consultation ‘Changing for Children’ in 2010.   We have a very dedicated paediatric workforce and look forward to having the highest standards of facilities to offer acute paediatric care across both of our hospitals. “In addition to ongoing works around the hospital, this development will undoubtedly cause some disruption to staff, patients and visitors until completion. The contractors will do everything they can to minimise disruption and we greatly appreciate co-operation and understanding from everyone who uses the hospital while we make these improvements to local services.” It is planned the new Paediatric Centre will be completed in 2017.
