A consultant physician in acute medicine: the Bournemouth Model for managing increasing numbers of medical emergency admissions.

Author information

Bournemouth Diabetic and Endocrine Centre, Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Castle Lane East, Bournemouth, Dorset BH7 7DW.


Consultant-led medical admission units have been developed as one method of managing the increasing number of acute medical emergencies. The need to document such innovations and to evaluate and analyse the role of an acute care physician in meeting the problems of acute care has been emphasised. We therefore report our experience of an acute admissions unit led by a consultant physician in acute medicine in a district general hospital.
