New Resuscitation Unit opens
The Emergency Department's newly refurbished and enlarged
resuscitation unit was officially opened this week by Non-Executive
Director, John Amaechi and longtime Volunteer Graham Watkins.
At the ceremony, speeches were made by Clinical Director Dr
Steve Jones and Graham who thanked and acknowledged the work of all
members of staff, including volunteers, porters, receptionists,
security and clinical staff and their contribution to treating the
1,000 patients on average who visit the department each day.
The new area provides a much larger modern facility for both
staff and patients.
The next phase in the Emergency Department's journey is the
development of a new Mental Health Assessment Room which will be
completed within the next few months.
