Theatres and Endoscopy

Services

Leighton Hospital currently has 12 Operating Theatres, providing a service for General Surgery, ENT, Gynaecology, Urology, Ophthalmics and Emergencies.  Our Theatre technician team also provides support for the Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

Within the Treatment Centre, we have four Theatres which provide a service for General Surgery, ENT, Gynaecology, Urology and Ophthalmics.  We also have a minor treatment room available for use.

Eight brand new, state-of-the-art Theatres treated their first patients in April 2014, as part of a multi-million project to improve the operating environments at Leighotn Hospital.

Our Endoscopy Suite consists of 4 endoscopy rooms including 1 room which has imaging facilities.

We run morning and afternoon sessions for Theatres and Endoscopy.   


Treatment Centre

Our Treatment Centre is a very busy area which in conjunction with the theatre and endoscopy suite, consists of a large reception area, admission and discharge lounges.  We hold Pre-op Assessment and Anaemia Clinics.

Within the Treatment Centre we are fortunate to have a café facility which is popular with both staff and visitors to the Treatment Centre.
