Overview

The Western Trust is launching a 12 week public consultation on the temporary change to Emergency General Surgery at South West Acute Hospital, Enniskillen from week commencing 16 January 2023.

The Trust is seeking staff and the public’s views on the temporary suspension of Emergency General Surgery at SWAH and will be facilitating seven face-to-face public engagements across the Fermanagh and Omagh Council area. Two virtual meetings will also be facilitated, as well as engagement sessions for staff.

The consultation will close in April 2023 and the outcome of the consultation will be considered at a Trust Board meeting in the Summer 2023.

It is important to note engagement events will be ticket only. One ticket will be allocated per person and ticket duplication must be avoided to comply with health and safety regulations.
