Relocation of Outpatients and GP Out of Hours at Daisy Hill

October 15, 2018

 The Outpatients and GP Out of Hours services at Daisy Hill Hospital are set to relocate as part of ongoing work at the hospital to make way for a new Direct Assessment Unit. 

From next Monday (22nd October) the General Outpatients Department and GP Out of Hours Service at Daisy Hill Hospital will be based at Bernish House (the old Nurses Home). 

 The creation of a Direct Assessment Unit for the hospital was one of the proposals agreed through the Daisy Hill Pathfinder Project to help sustain and develop unscheduled care services for the population of Newry and Mourne.

 Commenting on this latest phase of the development, Project Director Charlene Stoops said,

 “The relocation of Outpatients and GP Out of Hours is a big change for patients and staff but it was a necessary move to allow the Direct Assessment Unit to be based beside the Emergency Department and Diagnostics.  

 “We recommend that anyone coming to Bernish House for an appointment allows plenty of time for parking and to find their way whilst we get used to these changes on site.

 “Contractors and staff have worked hard to get us to this stage of our development and will continue to do their best to minimise disruption as we move into the construction phase of the new Unit.”  

 ENT/Audiology Outpatients remains in its current location within the main hospital building. Patients are advised to check their appointment letter for the location of their clinic before coming to the hospital.

 Bernish House is to the left of the Daisy Hill site as you enter through the main gates. Patients should follow the signage or ask staff if you need assistance.
