Medical Assessment Unit (MAU)

The Medical Assessment Unit (MAU) is on Level 1 of North Devon District Hospital. It provides specialised assessment and care for all medical patients who require admission to the hospital.

On admission each patient will be reviewed by experienced nursing staff, shortly followed by a team of medics, including junior doctors and registrars, with the final plan of care being decided by the consultant physician of the day.

If your hospital stay is longer than 24- 48 hours, you will be transferred to another medical ward to continue your treatment.
