Stamford Surgical Unit

The unit consists of Greenwood Day Surgery unit and theatre.  The one theatre delivers a variety of specialities within a day surgery environment.  The ward, although not purposely built as a day surgery unit has been converted to offer a bright, open and spacious 24hr stay environment.  The ward consists of eight trolleys and a step down recliner sitting room.  We can also provide a 23hr facility, the provision of which within one department is currently unique in the trust.  Certain groups of patients from Edith Cavell hospital are sent to us.  Greenwood also houses a procedure room with Endoscopy and minor surgery facilities.  As a department we offer a booking service allowing patient's to negotiate appointment time and date within the consultants schedule on booking.  The staff aim to make the patients visit as pleasant and stress free as possible.

Patients are given trust information leaflets corresponding to the procedures being performed in the department.
