The Acute Medical department provides a modern service including the 20 bed Acute Medical Unit (AMU), the Ambulatory Care Unit (ACU), and Acute Medicine Clinics currently held in the on-site day hospital.

The team consists of; 3 Acute Physician Consultants, 3 Trust Associate Specialists and 2 junior doctors.

We see, on average, 20–25 patients per day in our AMU, 12-15 per day in ACU and hold 4 clinics per week. We have built up good relationships with local general practitioners and this often results in discussion of cases with GPs and the avoidance of unnecessary admissions if this is felt more appropriate than admission. We have reduced admissions and shortened length of stay but our philosophy is one of ensuring safe, good quality care in a friendly and supportive professional department.

Good office space, IT support and secretarial support is provided. The Acute Medical Unit has 2 Band 8A ANPs and our general medical colleagues provide junior staff for the on call teams.
