Acute Medicine

Acute Medicine is the busiest department in the hospital. It looks after all medical patients admitted to hospital via their GP or through the Emergency Department (A&E). Experienced medical professionals see and assess the patients within an hour, decide on further investigations and urgent treatment, and make plans for the further care of patients whether that be at home, in an outpatient clinic or on a hospital ward.
