TAC’s Ambulatory Care pathways allow you to experience the BEST care when you want it
Traditionally seeing a specialist would involve coming for a clinic visit, then some investigations, followed byanother clinic visit and then, if needed, an operation which might include a couple of days in hospital. Why so many steps in the process and why so much inefficiency? It all adds up to delays and increased waiting times.
TAC has always advocated an ambulatory approach to carewhich means we can offer you a quick appointment when you want to be seen with affordable care. This means we can admit, treat and discharge patients on the same day. Now there is the added advantage that this is done out with a hospital and reduces the risk of infections.
TAC can often arrange same or next-day appointments – you’ll be seen by our consultants at a time that’s convenient for you and you will be sure to receive treatment that adheres to our BEST practice promise whether this is ambulatory care or not:
B Best value
E Effective treatment
S Safely delivered
T Timely – at a time that suits you
Some of the conditions that lend themselves to ambulatory care are:
Treatment for varicose veins used to involve long operations but now procedures such as Radio Frequency ablation, foam sclerotherapy & micro sclerotherapy are carried out on a walk-in walk out basis. Clinics and operating lists are undertaken both during the week but also at weekends to suit your requirements.
Heavy menstrual bleeding or post-menopausal bleeding are readily investigated at our one-stop clinic and are often treated as an outpatient meaning you can get peace of mind and treatment without lengthy waits andin the convenient setting of our Woman’s health clinic. Procedures include hysteroscopy, removal of endometrial polyps, fibroids as well as investigations for infertility, post-menopausal and abnormal bleeding all undertaken by our female gynaecologist at our Cults clinic.
Much of general surgery does require a hospital stay but there is a lot that doesn’t – we undertake Local Anaesthetic hernia repairs, removal of lumps and bumps, Vasectomies and ingrown toenail procedure as an outpatient. Haemorrhoids or piles a common cause for a lot of pain and worry are easily treated at ourone- stop rectal bleeding clinics, allowing you to be
seen and treated (in most cases) at the same visit.
