Kenwater Surgical Unit
Kenwater Surgical Unit is a purpose built mobile day surgery facility which opened on November 17 2014 at Hereford County Hospital. The facility serves as an extension to the existing Day Surgery Unit.
It is located at the end of the Hutted Ward corridor (opposite to Pre-Op Assessment) and accessed from a new entrance within the corridor. The unit is open from 7.30am to 8pm, Monday to Friday, and some Saturday's.
The care and treatment patients receive in KSU is exactly the same as provided in the main Day Surgery Unit (DSU).
Patients are required to attend the Day Surgery Unit reception on their arrival, as detailed in the patient letter. Patients will be directed by reception staff to either the Day Surgery Unit or Kenwater Surgical Unit prior to their surgery taking place.
