Same Day Emergency Care Unit, Epsom Hospital

Improving patient pathways in the Emergency Department

Epsom Hospital’s new Same Day Emergency Care (SDEC) facility forms part of a wider Urgent & Emergency Care Programme for Epsom & St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust being delivered by Artelia project and cost managers.

The new SDEC facility increases the capacity of the hospital’s Emergency Department, enabling it to provide emergency care to patients without the need for an admission to hospital, which is undoubtedly advantageous during Covid.

Seven, inter-related projects make up the complex programme of remodelling, extension and fit-out, which are sequenced to minimise disruption for the Trust. The programme was complicated by Covid, requiring some works to be re-phased to maintain clinical space in order to deal with the surge in Covid patients.
