About us

Elstead ward is a seventeen-bed short stay frailty unit recently opened in the Division of Access and Medicine, specialising in the care of the older frail person. It is a short stay, 72 hour assessment and admission unit. We take direct admissions from the Emergency Department, as well as transfers from the Emergency Assessment Unit (EAU). It is centralised around holistic patient care with a multidisciplinary approach.
