King Edwards VII’s Hospital opens state-of-the-art day surgery unit

Expansion enables independent hospital to carry out more procedures

A fourth theatre has opened at King Edward VII's Hospital in London

Apollo has completed construction of a new theatre at King Edward VII’s Hospital in London.

Designed by Ryder Architecture, the new facility will accommodate day surgeries, endoscopies, and other procedures.

It increases the hospital’s surgical capacity as well as providing a quicker, more-streamlined journey for patients undergoing minor procedures.

Fully equipped with the most-up-to-date equipment and technology, the theatre features four daycase ‘pods’ and three recovery bays, minimising the time patients will spend in hospital.

Kate Farrow, director of operations at the hospital, said: “We are committed to providing the highest-quality care in a state-of-the-art setting.

“And the opening of our new theatre, alongside our new pods and recovery space, allows us to streamline and enhance the patient journey for the benefit of our clinicians and patients.”
