The specialty of Acute Medicine is a new one; it has gained full specialty status with dual accreditation. It came about from the realisation that some of our sickest patients in hospital within the first few hours to days have no one dedicated to treating them. The aim of our work is to make rapid efficient diagnosis, to institute evidence based treatment timely and to stabilise acutely unwell medical patients, be they from GP referrals or by ambulance through the A&E. We ran a rapid access clinic for review of discharged patients and also GP referral requiring urgent general medical clinic review, we also provide advice to our GP colleagues by taking the phone call directly.
