:lol: Of course, they are open 24/7

(1) There's Saturday morning GPs and there's out of hours GPs

(2) Medical admissions units do not just get referrals from GPs... there's A&E, direct clinic referrals, clinical decisions unit, psychiatric / community / rehab hospital admissions etc. etc.

(3) MAU will have patients staying from before Saturday

If you're worried that they are closed, why not give them a call?

No, the hospital closes over the weekend and all the patients are sent home on Friday to come back in on Monday morning. Most hospitals will be closed over the weekend.

Don't forget that there is a strict cap on the time medical emergencies can arrive at the hospital, if you're there after 4:30pm you will be turned away as the nurses all want to get home on time at 5 o'clock.
