Basildon University Hospital has seven operating theatres in its main theatre suite. The Critical Care Unit is located close-by for patients who need extra monitoring and support following their surgery.
Both Basildon and Orsett Hospitals have dedicated day surgery units, with their own operating theatres, where most non-emergency surgery takes place. Many routine operations can be carried out without an overnight stay, thanks to advances in medical techniques and anaesthetics.
