NEWRY Private Clinic has reopened following a £3 million investment by its owners David and Laura McCaul.

The renovation and relaunch of the clinic represents a significant and positive improvement for healthcare in the region, with the clinic offering a range of more than 50 treatment areas and fast access to over 20 of Ireland's top healthcare consultants.

Treatment and services at the revamped clinic include dermatology, urology, cardiology, gynaecology, ear, nose and throat (ENT), GUM, paediatrics and over 40 other treatments and services.

The acquisition of the clinic ( by the McCauls is part of a bigger vision to bring faster access to healthcare for patients across the island of Ireland.

Clinic director Laura McCaul said: “When we first acquired the business in 2021, we were committed to build on the fantastic heritage and team built over the past two decades by the previous owners.

“Our vision is to deliver world class private healthcare to patients through a wide range of treatments and specialisms which will enhance the choices available to everyone in Newry and Mourne and surrounding areas. As proud Newry people, we want to put Newry on the map for leading the way in professional healthcare.”

She added: “We have significant investment plans for the clinic, with additional treatment and services coming in 2023. We have invested heavily in refurbishment, equipment, branding and web. We have plans in place to have new consultants and specialities join the team, with six medical consultation rooms and opening hours in evenings and weekends, we have the capacity to facilitate this.

“We have generated new jobs already in our first year and plan to create additional office space for our expanding administration support teams. We are extremely excited for the future.”

Co-owner and ENT surgeon David McCaul said there were huge benefits to the investment in the private clinic.

“This newly renovated private clinic has seen, and will continue to see, a comprehensive refurbishment and investment programme with the addition of a multi-million-pound MRI scanner next spring, the only private scanning facility of its kind in the Newry and Mourne area.”

Under the Northern Ireland Planned Healthcare Scheme, the clinic will also offer treatments to cross-border patients.
