General medicine

Friarage Hospital

The department provides acute care for adults of all ages across the entire spectrum of clinical medicine.  Care is organised by means of an integrated service.  Patients with purely acute needs are nursed in one of two acute medical wards with 22 beds in each, whilst those with both acute and rehabilitation needs are cared for in the multiple needs medical unit with 46 beds.  The consultant staff of the department have varied interests, including cardiology, respiratory medicine, gastroenterology, diabetes/endocrinology, rheumatology, haematology and rehabilitation.  Each GPST spends three months attached to an acute medical ward and three months to the multiple needs unit.  On-call duties involve cover for the whole unit.
