Why Medicine Board?

Infection Ward/T8

T8 is a 43 bedded infectious diseases unit within UCLH. We care for patients who have Infectious, Tropical Respiratory illnesses. T8 offers the opportunity to broaden knowledge in a wide range of specialities and the skills needed to care for these patients including Non-Invasive Ventilation, and tracheostomy care, as well as having haematology patients. We have close links with the Hospital for Tropical Diseases.

Critical Care

Critical Care/PACU is spread across 2 sites - 35 beds at University College Hospital and 9 beds at West Moreland Site. UCH site admits emergency admissions from the ward/A&E, elective and emergency surgery and has large haematology population. WMS admits elective thoracic and urology patients. Staff rotate across both sites to maximise learning and development. In 2020 we will be expanding our services further in a new purpose built 10 bedded haematology unit.

Medical Specialties Wards

Our wards comprise of 69 beds split between the 3 wards.

T7/T10M - are busy acute medical wards that offer a wide mix of acute medical issues. These include: respiratory, endocrine and cardiac medicine in addition to the acute management of dementia, delirium and frailty. We also are inpatient service for all older adults with complex needs

Evergreen Ward - is a step down unit of site at St Pancras Hospital which caters for patients with less acute needs but continue to require complex care input from hospital services.

The Emergency Department has a 130 strong nursing team who provide high quality care for 130,000 patients per annum who present with both emergency and non-emergency conditions. The Department is currently mid-way through an exciting multimillion pound re-build which will enhance services for the population we serve at UCLH.

The Emergency Assessment Unit provides assessment and treatment for acute medical patients within a 12 hour timeframe preventing the need for hospital admission. We also run a growing Ambulatory Care clinic facility which provides a consultant led service accessed by the Emergency Department, GP’s and other speciality teams.
