The Acute Admissions Unit at The Princess Grace Hospital treats both urgent medical and surgical conditions that do not require an Accident and Emergency unit.
Whether referred by a GP, oncologist, clinician, or directly from the Urgent Care Centre, our dedicated unit is appropriately staffed with access to an exceptional team of medical and surgical doctors, clinical nurse specialists and healthcare professionals who can assign tests, scans and other investigations as necessary.

Critical care at a critical moment

We believe the first few hours of a patient presenting with acute conditions are critical to establishing the correct diagnosis and treatment plans.

AAU’s ‘First Hour’ policy ensures that patients have the correct assessment and access to immediate investigations and initial treatments as soon as these are required.
