Acute Medicine is one of the busiest departments at the Royal Bolton Hospital.
The unit works closely with our Emergency Department, and admits patients into hospital 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Experienced medical and nursing professionals see and assess patients, decide on further investigations and urgent treatment, and make plans for the further care of patients.
This can be at home, in an outpatient clinic or on a hospital ward.
If a patient needs to be admitted to hospital, their care will be taken on by one of the inpatient speciality teams in the hospital.
