Tamworth hospital redevelopment moves services

THERE will be some big changes at Tamworth hospital in the coming weeks as services relocate to new homes ahead of the redevelopment.

This month the Kameruka Brain Injury Transitional Living Unit will make the permanent move to Wooster House the small brick cottage behind the hydrotherapy pool.

The liver and cardiac clinics will soon find a new home in the North West Cancer Centre for the duration of the redevelopment.

Once the redevelopment of the Bruderlin building, the main ward building, is finished in 2016, the clinics will relocate there, along with other outpatient services.

In March the renal service will move into a demountable building where the blood bank once stood.

The demountable was designed by the staff and has been purpose-built to provide dialysis.

The service will eventually move into the Bruderlin building, as will the obstetrics and gynaecology clinics.

While the redevelopment is under way, these clinics will operate from a demountable building near the Community Health building on Johnston St.

The Wattle Clinic, the methadone dosing clinic, will also be relocated into the demountable building.

Cancer services have already moved into the cancer centre.

Services will operate as normal throughout the redevelopment.
