The work of a Norfolk hospital unit has been shortlisted for three government awards.
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s same day emergency care (SDEC) was launched three years ago to help reduce the pressure on the emergency department.
It operates 18 hours a day and sees on average 60 people and is now among the contenders for the GPA’s smarter working awards for efficiency in the property portfolio, best use of a solution and the special recognition categories.
Caroline Shaw, chief executive of the QEH, said: “Despite that the unit has only being open for a short time, the importance of this service is clear to see.
“Patients who use this service are often discharged quickly without a prolonged stay in hospital.
