Rheumatology Day Case Unit

The unit was created to enable patients to attend for their treatment without the need for an overnight stay in hospital.

The day case unit is staffed by nurses with many years of rheumatology experience. Patients are able to receive their treatments in a relaxed atmosphere and comfortable surroundings. The length of time a patient is required to stay in the unit can vary from a few minutes to a few hours depending upon the treatment they are receiving. If a patient is to attend all day refreshments are provided, hot and cold drinks are always available.
