Day Treatment Centre (DTC)
From 22 March we have taken the difficult decision to stop all visitors to patients in adult wards and our emergency department.
There is no change to visiting rules on our children's wards (two visitors only) or maternity (two birthing partners, one who accompanies to mum to the post-natal ward).The Whittington’s Day Treatment Centre is a brand new healthcare facility based at the Whittington Hospital, designed to put your needs first, providing pre-planned surgery and diagnostic procedures for NHS patients. We choose day surgery whenever possible, as it minimises the amount of time you need to spend in hospital and recovery is quicker, reducing the disruption to your daily life. The Whittington’s Day Treatment Centre has four state of the art operating theatres and three endoscopy treatment rooms, plus an interventional imaging suite and minor procedure room, putting the hospital at the forefront of day case treatment in London. We know that day case treatment is popular with patients and with the opening of our new, modern Day Treatment Centre we are able to increase both the number and type of procedures performed.
