New Day Clinical Centre for Daisy Hill Hospital

The Day Clinical Centre at Daisy Hill has relocated from the fourth floor to a newly designed unit on level five of the main hospital building.

DHH DCC  0634The Southern Trust’s Day Clinical Centres at Daisy Hill and Craigavon Area hospitals offer a growing range of treatments which can now be offered to patients within a few hours.

The nurse-led centre at Daisy Hill can treat up to six patients at a time and includes an isolation room.

Esther Gishkori, Director of Acute Services for the Southern Trust explained, “Most patients prefer to return to their own home instead of having to stay overnight in hospital if they can.

“Developments in medicine and technology combined with better organisation, now means that we can offer more advanced care to people with many complex conditions as a day treatment.

“We can offer a wide range of treatments in our Day Clinical Centres, including blood or iron transfusions, intravenous antibiotics, glucose tolerance tests and other diagnostic and minor procedures.

Esther added, “Until recently many of these treatments needed an overnight stay, now suitable patients can come in for a few hours, get their treatment and go home again.”
