General medicine is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis, management and non-surgical treatment of unusual or serious diseases. The General Medicine Care Group provides a range of specialist medical care for inpatient and day cases and services such as acute medicine (emergency admissions), gastroenterology, endocrinology, diabetes, respiratory medicine, rheumatology, and cardiology.

The Care Group has four acute general medicine wards, including two Acute Medical Units. Overall we are responsible for 169 beds.

The General Medicine Department at St George’s Hospital covers Allingham, Marnham, Rodney Smith wards (based in St James Wing) and Dalby ward (based in Lanesborough Wing). There are two Acute Medical Unit wards – Richmond and Amyand, both based in St James Wing. The department is staffed by dedicated multidisciplinary teams, serving primarily the local residents of Wandsworth, Merton and Lambeth.
