During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

    Acute Medical Unit

    The Acute Medical unit (AMU) at Queen Alexandra Hospital is a 58 bedded facility which takes admissions from the Emergency Department, Ambulatory Emergency Care and direct from GPs. In addition to the admission ward, we provide an Ambulatory Emergency Care unit with nine bays. After patients have been assessed they will generally be treated, transferred to Ambulatory Emergency Care, admitted to a speciality ward, or discharged home.

    The Anaesthesia team provides anaesthesia to enable patients to tolerate operations and procedures in comfort and safety. This may be a local anaesthetic where the patient may remain awake, a local anaesthetic with sedation to make the patient drowsy or a full general anaesthetic where the patient will be asleep. We aim to provide safe, effective and personalised care to every patient we see, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
