NHS Lanarkshire Investment in A&E Facilities

I welcome today’s announcement by NHS Lanarkshire regarding further investment in A&E facilities and the approval of plans to introduce a Rapid Assessment Team at Monklands Hospital.

I understand that Clinical and managerial staff have agreed the designs for a £700,000 investment which will increase the size of the emergency department – highlighting NHS Lanarkshire’s commitment to maintaining three fully functioning A&Es.

The new design will mean a massive expansion to the existing emergency department while the introduction of a Rapid Assessment Team means treatment can start sooner which improves the patient experience and reduces the length of time they have to wait in the department.
