The work will meet the increased demand, by providing a modern facility with a ‘single front door’ entrance to stream patients according to their needs.

The new department will include; Adult ED, Children’s ED, Acute Care, Paediatric Assessment, Clinical Support including x-ray and CT; GP initial assessment; rapid assessment and support space.

The multi-phase program started in 2015, with the new facility due to open in July 2016.
