community benefits of the new hospital
The Tweed Valley Hospital will provide a number of benefits for the Tweed-Byron community, which includes our patients, staff, carers, visitors and students. Some of the benefits of building a brand new hospital on a new site include:
The new Tweed Valley Hospital will provide an increase in self-sufficiency of health services, which means that patients will be able to access more healthcare services locally.
This includes access to the necessary range of cancer treatments, including radiotherapy, as well as cardiac catheterisation and other life-saving procedures.
More than 5,000 patients each year will no longer need to travel outside of the region for life-saving treatments.
