Admission routes are through the Emergency department of Hull Royal Infirmary and GP admissions from Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire. AMU is an extremely attractive place to work for any acute physician, as it combines the excellent service of a tertiary centre with the fascination of unselected medical take.

Our consultants are very proud of the ambulatory care unit of Hull Royal Infirmary, as it looks after a wide variety of pathologies, and prevents admissions for the hospital as it provides an excellent service for urgent diagnostics and treatment.

The applicant will have opportunities to attend our teams dedicated weekly meetings and teaching sessions, take part in the weekly grand rounds of the Trust, develop their area of special interest within their working sessions, and take active part in teaching and training the junior members of the acute medical team.

The new applicant will be fully expected to take an active involvement in teaching and clinical governance activities of the acute team.
