Same Day Emergency Care Unit (SDEC)

The Same Day Emergency Care Unit sees and assesses patients who need treatment, investigations or diagnostics on the same day, rather than being admitted to hospital overnight.

Patients are referred by their GP, the Emergency Department, NHS 111 or from a recent discharge from hospital.

Patients may be in the Unit for several hours whilst awaiting tests and results.

There is a Same Day Emergency Care Service at both Conquest Hospital and Eastbourne DGH.
