The Surgical Short Stay Unit (SSSU) is a twenty-three bed short stay surgical unit which has a ten bedded Elective Surgery Unit (ESU) attached. The Surgical Short Stay Unit is a surgical unit where patients can be discharged on the same day or stay up to twenty-three hours post operation. The Elective Surgery Unit is for pre-operative patients on the day of surgery who will need to go to the main hospital after a short stay in the Post Anaesthetic Care Unit (PACU).
Normal visiting times have changed due to Covid-19. You may arrange a visit by contacting the ward and booking an appointment. The ward will complete a risk assessment for each visitor.
Visiting times are 2pm-8pm, Monday-Sunday.
