Omagh Health Centre GPs visit new Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex The Western Trust welcomed GPs, Practice Managers and staff members of the Omagh Health Centre onto the Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex construction site. During the visit, those in attendance were given the opportunity to view their state-of-the-art GP Practices and waiting areas alongside a variety of departments within the building as the project continues to progress.

Once operational, the £105 million pound investment will have 40 single en-suite bedrooms for in-patients for Rehabilitation and Palliative Care patients. The complex will also include a range of services such as a 24 place renal dialysis unit, a Health and Care Centre including modern GP practices and an Urgent Care and Treatment Centre.  In addition it will also provide advanced diagnostic services including a CT scanner and endoscopy services. There will be three day surgery operating theatres and 22 recovery beds, specialised AHP, Womens & Family Health and Childrens Services.

Ivan Boyd, Strategic Estates Officer, Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex said: “I was delighted to welcome the Omagh Health Centre GPs, Practice Managers and staff to view the ongoing progress of the Medical Practices and also receive a short tour of the site. Having GP Practices onsite is essential to fulfilling the vision of providing both primary care and hospital services within the Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex. As this significant capital project moves towards completion, it will provide a base for much-needed services for the people of Omagh and the surrounding area, all under one roof.”

From Spring 2017 the Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex will open its doors and provide a range of important healthcare services to the community. This will cover a range of primary, secondary and community healthcare services, appropriate for local delivery, to the people of Omagh and surrounding district. In addition it will also provide advanced diagnostic services together with modern GP facilities.
