Although AMI was designed specifically for studying galaxy clusters via the SZ effect, it has also been used extensively for studies of galactic objects such as spinning dust and compact HII regions. I will present some of the first results from the AMI Galactic Plane Survey, a large-area survey of the outer galactic plane providing arcminute resolution images at mJy sensitivity at 15 GHz.

I will also provide an update on AMI ’s observing programme following up galaxy clusters detected by Planck, and the use of these observations to investigate the accuracy of commonly used ‘universal’ pressure profiles.
