UHDB officially opened the new outpatient department, Clinic A, at the Florence Nightingale Community Hospital today (9/7/21) with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Outpatient Department A will initially welcome patients five days a week, between the hours of 08:00 to 17:00, and will host a range of specialities over the next 12 months as part of the Trusts wider recovery plan.

The department has been built to the highest of standards, including being dementia friendly, in order to offer the best service to our patients. It includes eight examination rooms and two consulting rooms, including separate rooms for video or telephone clinics.

Sharon Martin, Executive Chief Operating Officer, said: "This is a fantastic achievement for our Estates team who have designed and commissioned such a wonderful facility for the sole benefit of our patients and colleagues. As we look to recover our services, this new facility creates much welcome additional capacity, whilst adding to our commitment of putting our patients and communities first."

The department was opened with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday 9th July, with a small gathering of colleagues who were either involved in the project, or who will be working from the department going forward.
