Same day emergency care means that patients are assessed, diagnosed, treated and then sent home the same day with ongoing clinical follow-up as required.
Our acute clinic opening hours are 8am to 10pm and we are located next to A&E at The James Cook University Hospital.
Examples of patients who might be referred to same day emergency care include:
- Patients who require a brief period of observation prior to safe discharge
- Patients who require a specific test prior to safe discharge
- Patients who are waiting for a social or psychiatric assessment or intervention prior to discharge
