About the Ward

Medical Short Stay is an 18-bed unit situated on the first floor in Zone C (C20) one floor above the Lansdown Restaurant. Our state-of-the-art ward is sub-divided into four 4-bed areas plus two isolation rooms, each with an ensuite shower and WC.

The ward specialises in patients admitted with low risk chest pain. Other patients are also admitted with a variety of medical conditions who can be treated and discharged within 1 to 2.5 days.

Our ward philosophy is to care for each of our patients as an individual, providing a supportive environment that promotes independence and dignity and the highest standards of clinical treatment.

Working closely with A&E and the Medical Assessment Unit, we have daily consultant rounds and fast track investigation slots to manage and treat our patients quickly and safely ready for discharge home.
