Lionel Cosin Day Unit

The Lionel Cosin Day Unit is a day service for older people.

Patients attending the Lionel Cosin Day Unit usually see at least two members of the team - for example, nurses, doctors, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.

The Lionel Cosin Day Unit aims to provide a friendly and holistic service. Many of the patients who come to the Day Unit have more than one medical condition and some are very frail. The Day Unit is a place where different conditions can often be dealt with at the same time. Further follow-up appointments will be arranged as needed. Referrals onto other health professionals can/are made as required.

Hot drinks are available throughout the day and a light lunch will be provided if required. There is no charge for this.

At the Lionel Cosin Day Unit the aim is to:

  • provide specialist health services for older people - these include both identifying the causes of health problems and also providing advice and help with treatment
  • prevent unnecessary admission to hospital
  • help patients remain in their own environment/home
  • help maintain independence
  • provide carer information
  • liaise with other agencies.

The Lionel Cosin Day Unit is also used for other services. These are mostly for older people and include some clinics (e.g. Falls Clinic, General Outpatient Clinics). Other treatments can also be carried out (e.g. blood transfusions).
