Acute Medical Unit

At the Acute Medical Unit (AMU) we care for patients who are admitted to hospital unexpectedly and need urgent medical care. Our patients may be referred to us by their GP, an outpatient clinic or have come through the emergency department.
Our highly trained team provides will assess and, if appropriate, begin treatment. Some of our patients are able to go home fairly quickly and continue their treatment at home, others will stay in hospital and, depending on their condition, may be transferred to a specialist ward.
