New day surgery unit completed at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, in King’s Lynn
A �323,000 project to improve a day surgery centre at King's Lynn's Queen Elizabeth Hospital has been completed.
The work at the Arthur Levin Day Surgery took seven weeks and has created a new treatment room, with connecting changing room, which will enable a 'walkthrough' service for patients.
Minor urology, plastics and pain relief procedures, which would normally be carried out in other hospital theatres, will be undertaken in the new treatment room.
Patients will be able to walk into the room and leave via the changing room. The whole process may take as little as 30 minutes, depending on the procedure.
Using the new facility should shorten the amount of time patients spend at the unit. Meanwhile other patients on the waiting list may be seen quicker as a result of less pressure on facilities at the centre.
