Dr Palmira Mathurdas
Acute and general medicine, General Internal Medicine
I have broad experience in adult general internal medicine, which provides me with a unique ability to initiate treatment of a broad spectrum of acute medical problems. I always assess the patient holistically and considering the complexity of human disease and the complexity of chronic underlying medical conditions.
My focus is diagnosing and treating the wide spectrum of medical disorders that present acutely to hospital emergency departments and the acute medical unit. I provide advice and care for patients admitted to hospital under other specialties that have developed medical problems. I manage inpatients and outpatients with co-morbidities, including elderly patients with frailty.
I currently work as a Consultant Acute Physician at University College London Hospitals, where I have managerial responsibility for leading morbidity and mortality reviews.
