  Introduction

The decision to build a Health Centre adjoining the Robinson Hospital was taken in 1965 by the Robinson Memorial Hospital Committee.

Building work commenced in May 1968 and was completed early in 1970.

The concept of the health centre was that it should develop on this site, a totally integrated Hospital, General Practitioner, and Community Health & Welfare Services for the district, by providing:

GP suites for the two Ballymoney practices

Accommodation for Health & Welfare Clinics

Diagnostic and Library facilities for all the doctors & staff of the hospital

Lecture Hall facilities for clinical or public health meetings etc.

In addition to the doctors accommodation there are also District Nurses, Health Visitors & Community Midwives on site.

The health Centre has evolved into a multidisciplinary unit serving the needs of over 20,000 people. Combining both practices and nurse appointments there are in the region of 64,000 attendances per year.

Community Dental Clinic

 

The Community Dental Service (CDS) in the Northern Health and Social Care Trust is dedicated to treating patients with Special Needs who are unable to attend a General Dental Practitioner.

The reasons for this could include a physical or learning disability, a significant medical condition, or a dental phobia. Normally a Doctor, Dentist or other healthcare professional will refer a person to the CDS, although in some cases it is acceptable to refer ones self.  The dental team may also be able to see people in their own home if they are housebound.

The CDS are also involved in the promotion of Oral Health.


The CDS team consists of Dentists, Dental Hygienists, Dental Nurses and Oral Health Promotion Officers
