This is a very busy unit accommodating up to forty day case patients on a daily basis.  Our patients come to us mainly from the community, but also from the wards and other hospitals.  We accommodate emergency patients also who come usually via A/E, MAU.  We are able to take equipment to other parts of the hospital if patients cannot come to us because they are too ill, e.g. Main theatre, ITU, HDU, X-ray.
