Ambulatory Emergency Care (AEC)
Ambulatory care is about providing same-day emergency care. Our Ambulatory Emergency Care Centre offers easy access to diagnostic tests and review by hospital consultants in one place. It is a way of providing safe care designed around the needs of patients. The service also aims to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions and provide a better experience for patients.
The service is not pathway or condition-led to ensure all patients can be considered. All patients must be referred and clinically accepted by the ambulatory emergency care team. The Centre is focused on providing the right care for our patients, in the right place.
This is a day treatment service so patient can return back the following day for treatments, etc. This service also operates a nurse led Deep Vein Thrombosis service.
