Sheffield Lionesses Visits Thornbury Hospital

Sheffield’s very own Lionesses Esme Morgan has visited Thornbury Hospital to celebrate the opening of the hospital’s Ambulatory Care Unit.

As part of Circle Health Group’s investment programme at Thornbury Hospital, the newly opening Ambulatory Care Unit (ACU) houses minor procedures and endoscopies, featuring the latest state-of-the-art equipment in a calming, modern environment. Patients are looked after by a dedicated team of nurses and consultants ensuring a seamless pathway and enhanced care and recovery in the brand-new unit.

The ACU offers same-day care to patients at the hospital. This means that patients are treated and can usually go home the same day.

Thornbury Hospital’s theatres have recently become accredited by the
The Association for Perioperative Practice (AfPP) which is testament to the hard work, skills and dedication brought to the department by all those involved in providing safe patient care.

During her visit, Esme had the opportunity to view the Ambulatory Care Unit and met with several staff. Esme also visited the Hospital’s state-of-the-art scanning centre as well as the physiotherapy department.

Commenting on the visit, Kosta Antoniou, Executive Director for Thornbury Hospital said: “Having Esme visit Thornbury Hospital was a tremendous honour and we were delighted to see her.

“Her presence and support meant so much to our team and she was so engaging to everyone she met.

“In addition, we are thrilled to have received the AfPP accreditation and are incredibly proud of staff who have worked so hard to achieve this industry accolade.”

Thornbury Hospital serves patients in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire and surrounding areas, offering fast access to specialist consultants, usually within 48 hours, for diagnosis and treatment with some of the latest technology and equipment.
