MP thanks Broomfield Hospital staff for hard work

Kemi Badenoch MP with Laura Harding

Emergency department (ED) staff at Broomfield Hospital have been thanked for all their amazing hard work by MP Kemi Badenoch, after she saw how improvements in the department will help patients this winter.

The MP for Saffron Walden, who is also Minister for Levelling Up Communities and Minister for Equalities, was shown a new rapid assessment and treatment bay that is helping to improve the flow of patients arriving at ED and ensure the people who need the most help are seen first.

The hospital has also extended the operating hours of its same day emergency care unit to make sure that patients are directed to the right location and can return home as soon as possible. 

Mrs Badenoch said: “This time of year brings significant additional pressures on our local health services, alongside those they are already experiencing due to Covid-19. I was reassured to see some of measures the hospital have put in place as we move into winter.

“The key message from our NHS is for residents to make sure they choose the right service for their needs by initially calling NHS 111 to get health advice.

“Thank you again to Laura and everyone at Broomfield Hospital for all of your hard work.”
