Same Day Acute Care – Pilot | Service User and Carer Engagement Event

13th December 2022

What is Direct Assessment Unit – Same Day Acute Care?

The Tier 1 Pilot at Causeway Hospital would provide Same Day Acute Care where Emergency Department patients who meet certain criteria would be rapidly assessed, diagnosed and treated without being admitted to a ward.

If clinically safe to do so, patients would go home the same day their care was provided, reducing admissions and improving patient experience.

 

Engagement Event for Service Users

We are hosting an engagement event over Zoom on Monday 19 December at 1pm for Service Users and Carers to come and hear about the pilot proposal, and give us the opportunity to explain what this will mean in terms of service change.  We want to hear your views on the proposed pilot service and if there is anything we can do to improve the initial proposal.

If you are interested in attending

Register your interest by contacting InvolvingYou@northerntrust.hscni.net and we will issue a Zoom link to attend.
