Patients who visit Bassetlaw Hospital with conditions that previously required admission to a ward overnight are benefiting from a new service that means they may be treated and sent home quickly.

Thanks to the ambulatory care service, people diagnosed with or suspected of having a range of conditions can be assessed and treated by acute medical consultants and senior nurses without needing to stay overnight.

New patients with a reasonably probability of being sent home are seen by a nurse and acute medical physician in the ambulatory care facility, which has four treatment areas with reclining chair-beds, before being administered treatment if needed.
