After 4pm their condition will be reviewed and they may be well enough to go home; if not arrangements will be made to admit them to the general medical ward for on-going care.

Patients with thalassaemia also receive care on the unit, for example, blood transfusion and other therapies. When they are unwell they are admitted to the general medical ward.
