Emergency Department

Our Emergency Departments (also known as Accident and Emergency or A&E) are here to help people who are seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk. 

We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round. 

A highly experienced team of doctors, nurses and healthcare staff will care for you in an emergency.

People come to us via ambulance or by arriving at the ED main entrance and booking in with reception staff. If you need an ambulance please call 999.
