Theatre Admissions Unit, Sheffield Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

The new Theatre Admissions Unit at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital was devised to improve the current admissions procedure by providing a single point of first contact.  37 trolley bays have been provided in a mixture of 6, 4 and single rooms for changing and preparation of patients before admission to theatre. This allows the theatre suite to function much more efficiently due to a reduction in delays.

A pleasant and airy waiting area is provided for patients before and after their admission to theatre. The unit also includes ancillary and office facilities as well as interview and examination rooms.
