At the St Mawes Unit, we assess patients who have been admitted to hospital as an emergency, either through our Emergency Department or by their GP. Our patients are usually admitted for urology, vascular or general surgery.
On the St Mawes Unit we provide care 24 hours a day. The St Mawes Lounge receives patients who do not need to be in a bed. The Lounge is open from 8.30am to 9pm Monday to Friday and has a range of comfy standard and reclining chairs.
Our compassionate and highly trained team is dedicated to providing excellent patient care and making sure patients are assessed as soon as possible.
