In this section
The Acute Medical Unit (AMU) and Same Day Emergency Care (SDEC) unit receive acutely ill medical patients from General Practitioners or the Emergency Department.
The function of SDEC is to promptly assess patients that are considered suitable for treatment and discharge them on the same day, without needing hospital admission. At York Hospital, this is situated in the G1 ward (ground floor, junction 5).
AMU allows assessment of more dependent, acutely unwell patients that are expected to require overnight admission to hospital. At York Hospital, AMU is a 30-bed ward found on the second floor, junction 5.
At the Scarborough Hospital site, acute care is provided in the Emergency Assessment Unit and in the 32-bed AMU on Lilac ward.
