The Emergency Department is supported by some new outstanding facilities in the on-site Urgent Treatment Centre, Ambulatory Emergency Care Unit, and Clinical Assessment Unit. Work is currently underway to open a new Older Person’s Assessment Unit this year, and we are also focusing on developing and improving our acute medicine services, in part to enhance the support that we can offer to the ED and the UTC.
But no, we are not stopping there! We are shortly beginning the detailed planning of a £15 million capital investment in our Emergency Department. It is anticipated that the building work will begin 2023/24 and you could be part of designing the way that we work in the future so that we can bring all the latest technologies to the bedside where possible.
