Same Day Emergency Care (SDEC) summit held

Last week, a summit on the Same Day Emergency Care (SDEC) department was held on Teams to fully explore the plans and next steps from a variety of different colleagues throughout the Trust. When up and running, many patients will be able to be seen and treated in one day, avoiding a hospital admission.

A new three-storey building is starting to be constructed next to the Emergency Department (ED) which will house SDEC and the Critical Care Units (HDU and ICU combined) Once constructed, the new build will allow ED to expand further and implement new pathways to reduce pressure on ED.
