A state of the art 30-bed day surgical hospital specialising in eye surgery, orthopaedic surgery and general surgery

Healthshare was contracted in 2019 to provide clinical advisory, integrated commissioning, and operational management services to the New Era Day Clinic. The operational and design planning process commenced in early 2019 and construction began in September of the same year. The facility will open its doors to the public in February 2021, a little later than initially planned due to the effects of the COVID 19 Pandemic.

The Day Clinic includes modern and well-appointed consulting rooms, which will permanently accommodate a group of Ophthalmic surgeons, with a group of Orthopaedic Surgeons occupying sessional suites.

The hospital nursing staff are handpicked and work under the lead of an experienced theatre matron, ensuring the quality of care and excellent service.
