Level B, Basildon University Hospital,
Nethermayne, Basildon, Essex, SS16 5NL

Who the ward is for

Patients who need surgical treatment.

About the ward

The Surgical Referrals Unit (SRU) provides assessment for adults, referred by their GP or from A&E, who need surgical treatment, including:

  • orthopaedic surgery
  • urology surgery
  • gynaecology surgery

Following tests, which may include blood tests and x-rays, patients may be able to go home, or admitted into hospital.

If admitted into hospital, patients will then either stay on SRU if the problem is likely to be resolved in a few days, or they may be transferred to another ward.

Number of beds

26 beds:
18 inpatient beds
eight assessment beds



Senior Sister: Georgina Fox
