Ambulatory Emergency Care
Patients might be referred by their GP or the Emergency Department for assessment to the Ambulatory Emergency Care area on Gate 31a, Level 0, Brunel Building, Southmead Hospital.
This is a seated assessment area where the patient’s story can be detailed, investigations arranged and treatment started if needed.
Some patients will be discharged at this point with a detailed plan for follow-up or outpatient investigations if required. It is here that other patients will see a medical Consultant.
