Safeguarding Adults from Abuse

This leaflet explains what you can do if you are being abused or if you are concerned that another adult is at risk of being abused, neglected or seriously harmed.

Surgical Assessment Unit at York Hospital
The Emergency Department (ED) and GPs refer patients to this unit to have an urgent specialist surgical opinion on their condition. The team at the unit can quickly assess and investigate their condition. A decision is then made on whether they need to be admitted to hospital or can safely be discharged home, perhaps with further follow-up.
