South West Acute Hospital tackling Regional Waiting Lists for Paediatric Surgery31/05/2022
Children in the Western Trust area and across Northern Ireland will benefit from Paediatric surgery taking place at the South West Acute Hospital, Enniskillen from this month.
Anne Donaghey Assistant Director of Operations and Service Improvement for Omagh and South West Acute Hospital’s said: “We are delighted to be able to facilitate paediatric surgery one day per month to tackle regional waiting lists for young people who require routine surgery.
Anne continued: “The initial patients availing of this surgery will be Western Trust patients, with a maximum of eight children benefitting per day. We will be working with our HSC Trust colleagues to ensure that children across the region will receive their surgery as quickly as possible. This move is an illustration of the Western Trust working in partnership with regional colleagues to fulfil the Health Minister’s ambitions on reducing waiting lists for elective surgery across specialties.”
