Acute medicine


The trust has dedicated acute medicine consultant led services at both Barnet Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital. The service provides multidisciplinary assessment, stabilisation and treatment of acutely ill adult medical patients of all ages. 

Patients are identified in the emergency department as requiring specialist medical care. Patients are then admitted to the acute assessment unit at Barnet Hospital or to the medical assessment unit (MAU) at the Royal Free Hospital for rapid diagnosis and treatment.
