Latest News - Ambulatory Emergency Care (AEC) units now at both Hospitals - May 2014

Our Trust is launching the second phase of a new service which will see patients offered access to same day acute medical care in dedicated facilities. Ambulatory Emergency Care (AEC) is a national initiative designed to improve care for patients while reducing admissions and taking some pressure off Emergency Departments.

The opening of the Cheltenham General AEC on 6th May means that both hospitals now offer this service, which sees patients assessed, diagnosed, treated and discharged home the same day without the need for overnight admission. The AEC unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital has been operating successfully since late September 2013.
