Day Surgery Unit (DSU) move
A major 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.
The DSU will move from the Elmstead Unit and transfer over to the second floor of Constable Wing. This building work will also support the works for the Elective Orthopaedic Centre and Endoscopy Unit.Back to top
