ACUC provides rapid assessment, diagnosis and treatment of patients with urgent medical conditions.

ACUC is a 24 bedded unit, which aims to assess and either discharge or transfer patients to a more specialised area. ACUC also cares for patients in the Hyper Acute Stroke Unit, which provides specialist care for patients who have suffered a stroke.

We see a complex mix of patients and our multi-professional team is able to provide close observation and expert care.
