Improvements being made at Warwick Hospital

IMPROVEMENTS are being made at Warwick Hospital.

The Lakin Road site is having its Ambulatory Care Unit refurbished and a new hub built in its A&E department.

The Ambulatory Care Unit – where some patients are taken for early decision making – is currently being refurbished at a cost of nearly £900,000.

And hospital bosses say the A&E hub – which has been funded by a £400,000 grant – will be a space where staff can safely and confidentially access patient information while still being able to keep an eye on the patients.

Both areas are expected to fully reopen by Christmas but in the meantime patients from the care unit will be moved to beds in other wards.

A hospital spokeswoman said: “The Trust’s Ambulatory Care Unit supports early diagnosis and access to treatment in the most appropriate setting, without having to stay in hospital any longer than necessary. The unit is currently undergoing refurbishment work, which will enhance patient experience and support staff to deliver care in the most efficient and safe way.

“The trust has also received national funding to make improvements within the A&E department. A new central hub area is being created, which will be a dedicated space for staff to access patient information easily and securely.

“These improvements within the Ambulatory Care Unit and A&E will help to streamline the flow of patients and improve the patient journey.”
