Acute Medical Unit

Welcome to the Acute Medical Unit, we look after patients who are admitted for urgent investigation or care by their GP, an outpatient clinic or the Emergency Department.

Our team

As a team, we are led by Tash Kelly, Gemma Bishop and James Glen, who are supported by an experienced team of deputy sisters and charge nurses.

Visiting times

We have set visiting times to allow us to provide care and for our patients to rest. Recently, our visiting times have had to alter due to the Covid 19 Pandemic and requirements around infection control. For the most up to date information, please read the visitor guidance here.

Contact us

If you would like to call, it is better to do so after 11am when the doctors will have finished their ward round. Please ring the hospital switchboard on 01202 303626 in the first instance to check where your relative or friend is located within the hospital, as patients often move out of AMU relatively quickly.

Meal times

Our meal times are 12-1pm and 5-6pm. If you would like someone visiting to support you during meal times, please discuss this with the nurse in charge.

Our performance

If you would like to see how we are performing as a ward, you can do so here.
