New Shuttle Bus Service to Omagh Hospital & Primary Care Complex

24 May 2017

The Western Health and Social Care Trust (Western Trust) has agreed an important new bus contract with Translink, which will see a shuttle bus service operate from Omagh Bus Station to the new Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex.

Commencing on Wednesday 21 June 2017 the new service (service 384e) will operate Monday to Friday, leaving every half hour from 8.00am to 6.00pm and then hourly until 9.00pm. This new service will provide a reliable public transport option to the new Hospital site for patients, staff and visitors.

Teresa Molloy, Director of Performance Management and Service Improvement said: “We are extremely pleased to announce the provision of a shuttle bus service for the new Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex. The team have done a great job and worked extensively with Translink to set up the new bus arrangements to and from the new Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex. Whilst we anticipate many people attending the hospital will travel by car, it was important to ensure that an appropriate public transport option was available, and we would encourage our patients and visitors to use the service.”

Translink will provide the following information sessions on all aspects of the new service including timetables and good value tickets on Thursday 1 June 2017 -
•         10.00am – 12.00 Omagh Health Centre Back Entrance  
•         12.30pm – 2.00pm Tyrone County Hospital Staff Restaurant 
•         2.00pm – 4.00pm Tyrone County Hospital Out Patients Department

Sean Falls, Service Delivery Manager for Translink said: “We’re committed to delivering a transformation in public transport, providing vital services at the heart of the community that connect people to hospitals, work, education, shops and social activities. This development is good news for anyone travelling to the new Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex, reducing barriers to essential healthcare provision in the local area. We’ve worked closely with the Western Trust to deliver a service that benefits patients, visitors and staff and we would encourage anyone travelling to the hospital to take advantage of public transport as a more relaxing and hassle-free way to travel.”

Timetables for the Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex (service 384e) are available from Omagh Bus Station. Visit www.translink.co.uk or call 90 66 66 30 to plan your journey.
