These facilities combined with the latest in technology and on -site support services enables our consultants to undertake a wide range of procedures from routine investigations to complex surgery.  This specialist expertise is supported by our caring and professional medical staff, with dedicated nursing teams and a resident doctor on duty 24hours a day, providing care within a friendly and comfortable environment. All of our bedrooms are single occupancy and many offer the comfort of en-suite facilities with a bath or shower.  They also have Satellite television for your personal use.
