Our day hospitals provide community based out-patient care, through which multi-professional assessment and treatment is available on a full or part-day attendance basis. Patients attend for assessment, various treatments and activity groups, dependant on the patient’s requirements. The multidisciplinary team work closely with various agencies, including social services, local residential and nursing homes, voluntary agencies and primary care teams to ensure a seamless, coordinated approach for those patients referred to the services.

- complex wound clinics
