Emergency care unit
Supporting A&E departments
Creating urgent care capacity
Southend University Hospital, part of Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust deployed a temporary ambulance handling unit to reduce patient handover delays enable ambulance crews to respond to emergency calls with fewer delays.
- Our team deployed a bespoke solution within 1 week
- The solution meant ambulance crews could safely hand over patients and get back on the road to answer more category 1 and 2 calls
- Located near their A&E department, the units provided a safe place for patients to be regularly monitored and assessed by a clinical team while awaiting space in the ED department
When people call 999 the public expect the ambulance service to attend, units like this will help make sure that we can.
