Extension of planning permission sought for new UHG Oncology Centre

An extension of planning permission is being sought for the construction of a new Oncology Centre at University Hospital Galway.

When completed the oncology centre will include seven radiotherapy treatment vaults, a brachytherapy suite, two CT rooms, on-treatment support and ancillary physics, treatment planning and administration facilities.

The HSE was first granted planning permission in October 2015 for the demolition of the existing Psychiatric unit and link corridor to the hospital’s Paediatric unit, and to build a three storey Radiation Oncology Centre in its place.

The grant of planning permission is set to expire on August 11 of this year, and the HSE is predicting that the project will be completed by June 2022.

The work carried out on the site so far includes the construction of a new ground floor link corridor between the Paediatric Unit and the main hospital, and modification to the road and car park layout on site.

The Psychiatric Unit has been demolished, and site preparation work which has taken place includes “the removal of redundant services, the completion of a bulk dig and the provision of perimeter hording to the site”.

Galway City Council is due to rule on this Extension of Duration application by August 4.
