Accident & Emergency

Our Accident and Emergency department (A&E) has its own dedicated entrance at the front of the hospital. The department is open all year round, 24 hours day. 



Note:  A&E should not be confused with the Emergency Admissions and Discharge Unit (EADU) which is for the assessment of emergency patients sent to hospital by family doctors.

Our A&E treats more than 60,000 patients a year.

Our A&E nurses and doctors operate a See and Treat service for patients with more minor problems and we aim to treat patients as quickly as we possibly can.

Within the A&E department we treat patients with life-threatening problems in the Resuscitation area (we call it Resus).

Children are cared for in our brand new separate treatment and waiting area.

A&E patients may also need to be seen by our Radiology team for x-rays or MRI and CT scans and patients with broken bones are treated in our plaster room.
