Ambulatory care is being developed within Hariri building which is going to work based on a patient-focused service where some conditions may be treated without the need for an overnight stay in hospital. The aim of this service is to provide patients with the care required to treat their condition during scheduled ambulatory care opening hours. It will be staffed by a consultant, on-call medical team, qualified nursing staff and a healthcare assistant (HCA).
