Four men have been arrested at a Staffordshire hospital under the Terrorism Act.
Staffordshire Police arrested the men after a police unit which included firearms officers was called to the Stafford District General Hospital.
The four are being held at a police station in the county.
A fifth man who was being treated at the hospital was transferred to another hospital for specialist treatment, police said.
A Staffordshire Police spokeswoman said the men were arrested "under the Terrorism Act 2000 as a result of information received".
She added: "They were arrested by officers from the force's incident management unit which included some specialist firearms officers.
"The men are now in custody at police stations in Staffordshire."
Two sections of the hospital car park are still being cordoned off with police tape, with two police cars parked nearby.
