King George V Ward

King George V Ward (KGV) provides care for patients needing emergency surgery  (general surgery, colorectal, upper GI and urology), as well as emergency and non-emergency surgical care for gynaecology patients and some early pregnancy care (working with Petter Day Ward).

It is also home to an ambulatory assessment area, which is open 24/7. The surgical team sees patients coming from the emergency department or from their GP for initial investigations to determine whether an admission is needed. Patients needing an admission will be transferred onto the ward, or onto Lundy Ward, depending on their clinical needs.
