A Regional Hub for Women’s Health has been opened at Nenagh Hospital. Following a GP referral, women can be assessed and treated at one-stop “see-and-treat” gynaecology clinics. The Department of Health said the hub will ensure women ‘receive right care at the right time, and in the right place.’
Ambulatory Gynaecology and menopause clinics were open in the summer. The subfertility clinic will open later this year.
Ambulatory Gynaecology combines ‘one stop’ clinics and ‘day surgery’ operations as an alternative to traditional outpatient consultations and in-patient surgery.
