Sandringham Emergency Department is community focused and has an integrated Urgent Care Centre model of care.

Alfred Health aims to ensure all patients receive timely, high quality care consistent with their clinical needs. This principle applies to all our patients, those admitted as a result of emergency, elective surgery patients and those treated as outpatients through our specialist clinics. For our emergency patients this involves patients being assessed by a senior doctor who will provide their definitive care as soon as possible.

Our care delivery system is based on a multi-disciplinary team approach to care. Each shift is staffed by a complement of both senior and junior medical and nursing staff; this enables a safe, supported practice environment to facilitate safe patient care delivery and experiential learning opportunities for all staff. Medical and nursing staff work collaboratively in the comprehensive assessment, person centred care planning and delivery of treatment of our patients for the entire duration of their stay.
