Orthopaedic hospital’s tumour unit moves step nearer to reality
Oswestry’s orthopaedic hospital is moving forward with plans to create a £14 million theatre and tumour unit.
The unit will include four new clean air theatres, a high dependency unit and an admission on day of surgery unit. A new dedicated bone cancer centre with inpatient and clinic facilities and a ward will also be built. The unit is due to be completed in Spring 2016.
A spokeswoman for the hospital said: “The tumour unit in Oswestry delivers a nationally specialised bone tumour service, one of only five in the UK, with a catchment area of nine million people.
“[The new unit] will provide a modern state of the art facility in line with the Trust’s vision to be the leading centre in orthopaedic care.”
