The acute assessment unit (AAU) is a ward for medical and emergency patients who have been referred by their GP or A&E to undergo further assessment. When a patient arrives on the ward, they will be assessed by a nurse and observations and investigations will be carried out, the patient will then be seen by a doctor who will plan the diagnosis and treatment.
