Day surgery units – Basidlon and Orsett sites
Basildon University Hospital has seven operating theatres in its main theatre suite. The High Dependency Unit and Intensive Therapy Unit are located close-by for those 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. The Trust's surgeons are pioneers in this field.
