Have you ever wondered what it is like to work in a busy hospital emergency department?
Hinchingbrooke Hospital’s emergency care team has organised a meeting to discuss all the issues of treating people in the department and members of the public are welcome to attend.
In addition, staff and trust board members will be throwing the spotlight on the process for discharging patients who are fit to leave hospital.
Hinchingbrooke emergency department consultant, Dr Pallav Bhatnagar, will present an update on recent improvements made within emergency care and talk about how the public can assist their local hospitals this winter by seeking the appropriate treatment for their needs.
Mary Donaldson, assistant general manager for capacity and flow, will also be discussing the patient discharge process and how patients and their relatives or carers can support the hospital when it is time to leave.
