Acute Medical Unit
The Acute Medical Unit is a 33 bed ward designed to provide high quality and prompt care for patients admitted to the Department of General Medicine for their first 48-72 hours in the hospital.
We provide rapid assessment, diagnosis and early treatment for selected patients, mostly referred to us by the Emergency Department. AMU patients receive priority scans and blood tests.
Once patients are stable, we either discharge them or transfer them to another ward for ongoing care.
