It links closely with the Emergency Medical Admission Unit, the Discharge unit and other medical wards. It offers students excellent broad experience of caring for patients with a variety of medical conditions. It also offers the opportunity to observe and practice the delivery of both fundamental care and a very wide range of clinical skills. There is a heavy emphasis on multi-disciplinary teamwork and all students working on A1 will gain invaluable experience in working as a part of this team.
