Same Day Emergency Care MDT Model

BCUHB have developed a multi-speciality service where the service is predominantly led by our advanced nurse practitioners with minimal input from the medics. They see approximately 30 patients per day via this service.  There is also a nurse led therapies service whereby patients will have blood transfusions/IV therapy and several other procedures to avoid the patient having to come into the acute setting as an inpatient.
