Investment in gynaecology facilities at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital
07 March 2017
Chelsea and Westminster Hospital has this week opened a state-of-the-art unit to combine our gynaecology inpatient services in one dedicated location.
The brand new Annie Zunz gynaecology ward is based on the 4th Floor of the hospital and attached to the Elizabeth Suite, housing our Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit (EPAU) and emergency gynaecology services.
James Beckett (Divisional Director of Operations) said: “We are absolutely delighted that a long-held plan to develop a dedicated gynaecology unit has come to fruition to improve the patient experience. The team have worked so hard to make this a reality and we are very excited with this new space for our patients.”
Michele Carr (Clinical Nurse Specialist) said: “We are thrilled that the Elizabeth Suite has opened today, providing a brand new early pregnancy and acute gynaecology department within the hospital. Having a new specialist gynaecology ward in a dedicated space designed for the unique needs of gynaecology patients will further improve the experience for women requiring inpatient care.”
This investment will help our gynaecology team provide a holistic emergency care service suited to the needs of our patients and will support A&E and GP colleagues as those experiencing emergency gynaecology symptoms can be redirected to the specialist service.
