Poole Hospital have opened a new treatment unit, providing a ‘one-stop-shop’ for patients.
The Outpatients Treatment Centre provides a range of clinics for people in east Dorset. It supports the relocation of some of the hospital’s local anaesthetic treatment procedures previously undertaken by the hospital’s day and main theatres – releasing vital theatre capacity back into these areas.
Patricia Reid, Poole Hospital’s Director of Nursing, said: “These latest improvements provide an enhanced service for a wide range of our patients in a dedicated, purpose-built unit.
“I’m glad to see that it’s already providing patients with faster access to treatment and an improved experience.”
The Outpatient Treatment Centre was completed in July 2019, and it staffed by doctors and dentists who work within this area, supported by a team of registered nurses, registered dental nurses, healthcare assistants, hygienists and prosthetic specialists.”
