Medicine division

acute unitThese are exciting times in the Division of Medicine. We have re-located and now settled in our new refurbished medical wards which has created a 'medical village' within the hospital. This includes moving into brand new purpose built wards for some of our specialties. If variety is what you are looking for we like to think that we offer a wide range of specialties within the Division.

Our inpatient specialty wards include Respiratory, where we provide specialist non-invasive ventilation, Gastrointestinal services including intestinal failure and liver failure, healthcare for older adults, short stay medicine and acute stroke care.

In addition to this, our division is responsible for the dynamic and busy Emergency Department where we see an average of 200 patients a day, as well as elective admissions and rehabilitation at our recently opened South Bristol Community Hospital.

We are continually developing our 'front door' services such as Ambulatory Care and GPSU, to avoid hospital admission. We have also implemented a larger brand new OPAU (Older person Assessment Unit) and AMU (Acute Medical assessment Unit) to improve patient's pathway, meaning that we are working closer with our primary care colleagues to achieve this.
