The modern design of the Emergency Care Centre creates the perfect environment for the care of patients.
Better experience for patients
For urgent and emergency care patients the centre will provide early diagnosis resulting in earlier and more appropriate treatment. Services will be able to work together in a more organised way.
Less risk of infection
The accommodation in the new Emergency Care Centre is predominantly in single rooms with en-suite facilities. This will reduce the likelihood of healthcare acquired infection.
Reduced admissions/shorter stay in hospital
With more diagnostic, treatment and care services becoming available in the community, more patients are likely to be treated without the need for admission to hospital.
Privacy and dignity
The Emergency Care Centre will deliver clinical care in a modern environment. Maintaining patient dignity and privacy has been an important element of the design process.
