Day Surgery Unit (DSU) move


Day Surgery Unit (DSU) relocation at Colchester Hospital

A part of the big builds project is the relocation and development of the DSU to create a more modern facility at Colchester Hospital.

Patients that attend hospital for day case procedures will go to the DSU. This allows patients to come in and go home on the same day. Our clinicians know that patients actually recover quicker at home as they sleep better and are at less risk of infection.

Medical advances mean that more and more procedures are becoming day cases. The patient’s doctor will decide if they are suitable for a day case procedure.

When the Dame Clare Marx Building opens in 2024, Day Surgery will move over to the new building.
