The hospital site opened over 10 years ago. Although this is still new, rising demand meant that they are redeveloping the department at present to expand it by 30%. The Trust employs more than 6,000 staff on both the hospitals and community sites, making them the biggest employer in South East London.
The Emergency Department is among the busiest in the area, seeing in excess of 150,000 new patients annually. The workload provides an opportunity to see a wide variety of acute medical and surgical problems. In general, the local population is young and almost one third of new patients are children.
As well as Emergency Medicine, the hospital provides services for Coronary Care, Intensive Care & High Dependency, Maternity and Special Care Baby Unit, Paediatrics, Surgery, Internal Medicine, Mental Health, Oncology, and out-patient services. These are supported by a full range of clinical and support departments such as radiology, including MRI on site, and pathology.
The Emergency Department has under its management an active Clinical Decision Unit (CDU). This is a 12 bedded unit adjacent to the department and made up of 5 male and 5 female bays as well as 2 side rooms. There are also 6 comfortable recliner chairs for lower acuity, self-caring patients or patients requiring minimal assistance and care awaiting for example, the results of investigations, completion of treatments or transport.
