Mid Ulster Hospital
Mid Ulster Hospital, situated on Hospital Road, Magherafelt, provides a range of sub-acute hospital services and a Minor Injuries Unit.
The Mid Ulster Hospital has a community rehabilitation facility which has 21 beds. We provide care for patients requiring rehabilitation, palliative care or who require further assessment following an acute hospital admission.
Local GPs manage the medical needs of patients who are admitted to this Hospital. Patients are admitted to this unit as “step down” from acute hospitals or as “step up” from home. All patients must be assessed as suitable to be cared for in this setting and during their period of admission are supported by our multidisciplinary team to facilitate their discharge.
The following services are provided at Mid Ulster Hospital: Children’s unit, Community dental services, Day Surgery Unit, Dietetics, Endoscopy Suite, Minor Injuries Unit, Occupational therapy, Outpatients services, Physiotherapy, Radiology and diagnostics, Speech and language therapy and Community Rehabilitation Ward.
Due to the impact of Covid-19, and the focus on infection prevention and social distancing, a Phone First system has been introduced at the Emergency Department. ‘Phone First’ is for patients (including children) who are unwell and considering travelling to Antrim Area or Causeway Hospital Emergency Departments (EDs) or the Mid Ulster Hospital Minor Injuries Unit, and those with an injury or illness which requires urgent treatment but is not immediately life threatening.
