Acute Medical Unit
For fast hospital admission and one-call referral to experienced specialist physicians, GPs can now refer acutely unwell patients with private hospital cover to the Acute Medical Unit (AMU).
This service is available seven days a week between 8.00am and 8.00pm, and led by on-call physicians, resident medical officers and our highly experienced nurses.
To refer a patient please call our nurse and On-Call Physician.
Tel: 1800 SUBIHELP (1800 782 443)
Patients must be approved by the on-call physician before they present to the hospital for admission.
The following clinical exclusions apply:
- patients awaiting care placement
- acute abdominal pain
- GI bleed
- patients requiring companions for wandering or aggression
- potential stroke
- dyscopia and
- anyone who has had major primary surgery elsewhere in the last 10 days.
The AMU is not an emergency service but offers patients a streamlined way to access the exceptional care of St John of God Subiaco Hospital.
