Under the Same Day Emergency Care model, patients presenting at hospital with relevant conditions can be rapidly assessed, diagnosed and treated without being admitted to a ward. If it is clinically safe to do so, they will go home the same day their care is provided.
Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust runs surgical SDEC and medical SDEC. You will be told which one to attend.
If you are being discharged from the emergency department to return to SDEC the next day please ensure that the emergency department has the correct telephone number for you. You may be given an appointment time to attend SDEC before you leave the department.
To find both SDEC departments enter the hospital through the emergency department entrance and turn right. Follow the corridor until you see both departments sign posted.
