CRITICAL CARE

The intensive care and high-dependency units will be merged, instead of separated as they are in most hospitals. This means that patients will be cared for by the same team, lowering the chance of medical errors. Stable patients can also be wheeled out to outdoor gardens on the same floor.

A&E PROCEDURE

The hospital’s accident and emergency (A&E) department combines registration, triage, and consultation, which, hopefully, will speed up waiting time.

Patients who do not need to be warded will also be able to collect their medication and make payment at the same time.

In most hospitals, these are typically broken down into separate steps, which contributes towards long waiting times
