Welcome to the cardiac day case unit. The day case is a 20 bedded male and female ward, which admits patients for their procedures and cares for them post procedure until they are discharged home. The most common procedures include coronary angiogram, coronary angioplasty, permanent pacemakers, internal defibrillators and Cardioversions. As the ward usually caters for mainly elective patients, it is open 24hrs Monday through to Friday and closes at weekends. The ward consists of eight staff nurses all specialised in cardiology and four health care assistants. There is also one sister who is in charge of the ward five days a week.
Patients being admitted for morning procedures should arrive by 8.00am and those arriving for afternoon procedures should arrive for 10.30am.
The unit is located on ground floor of Lancashire Cardiac Centre across from the main lobby / café area
