Our dynamic outpatients department accommodates over 150 consultants covering a wide range of specialities, many of which are able to be provided as a same day investigation or procedure and / or a one-stop clinic including breast care, ENT, dermatology, ophthalmology, cosmetic procedures and general surgery. Additionally, a clinical treatment room is used for minor operative procedures, wound care clinics and nurse led clinics.

A member of the team is always on hand to provide patients with food and refreshments, whilst special light meals are prepared for those patients who have undergone a general anaesthetic.

We are happy to cater for patients and visitors who have special dietary requirements. Visitors are also welcome to join patients for meals in their rooms but there will be a small charge for this facility.

Ambulatory Care (Surgical Day Case Unit)

A surgical day case is a patient who is admitted for an operation on a planned non-resident basis who still requires facilities for recovery. The whole procedure should not require an overnight stay in a hospital bed.

Day surgery poses the least possible disruptions to the everyday life of the patient as they return home the same day as the surgical procedure.

Advantages of day surgery include the shortening the separation time from family members, diminished anxiety, and the possibility of recovery in a familiar setting, as well as:

  • Facilitating speedier recovery
  • Better outcomes as patients follow an evidence-based pathway of care
  • The reduced risk of patients contracting hospital acquired infections as generally there are lower infection rates in day case units
  • Patient satisfaction is high

Common procedures appropriate for Day Case or Ambulatory Care are routine and common surgical procedures such as surgery for cataracts, hernias, varicose veins, and hand conditions although many more procedures can be performed in Day Case Units if the patients are prepared adequately.
