Construction is underway on a new €5m ophthalmology outpatients department on a site adjacent to the existing BreastCheck premises on Infirmary Road, Cork city.

The new Ophthalmology Outpatients Department on Infirmary Road, Cork city, is expected to open in the second quarter of 2021 having been first mooted in 2011.
Construction is underway on a new €5m ophthalmology outpatients department (OPD) on a 0.12-hectare brownfield site adjacent to the existing BreastCheck premises on Infirmary Road, Cork city.
The 1,181sq m eye clinic, designed by Reddy Architecture and Urbanism, will cater for the relocation of ophthalmic services from Cork University Hospital (CUH) to the South Infirmary Victoria University Hospital (SIVUH).
The premises, a three-storey building to the front and single storey to the rear, is designed in a way that allows for a potential two-storey future expansion. It is expected to be completed in the second quarter of next year.
The development, located within lands owned by SIVUH, is part of a long-running reconfiguration of services agreed by the six acute hospitals in the South/South West Hospital Group as far back as 2011. Phase one of the relocation plan, the transfer of eye surgery to SIVUH, has already taken place.
The OPD project will include a new access ramp serving neighbouring BreastCheck and the new clinic. The ramp will be built in white brick, common material to the two buildings, along with a glass balustrade and continuous stainless steel handrails. The development will also lead to the realignment of footpath and cycleway to provide set down for taxis and public vehicles. The project does not involve any works to SIVUH itself, which is a protected structure.
