Our Accident & Emergency (A&E) Department provides high quality care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We treat more than 100,000 patients a year.
A&E has nine consultants on hand 16 hours a day and on-call outside that time. There are junior doctors and registrars in general and paediatric emergency medicine on hand. The nursing team is led by an Emergency Medicine Matron.
We have full resuscitation facilities, an integrated GP-led service and a separate Paediatric Emergency Department.
We also take direct referrals from GPs for adults and children.
When you come to A&E, you will be assessed by an experienced nurse. This assessment is known as triage and it ensures the most seriously ill patients are seen first.
If you have a minor injury or illness, you may be directed to alternative services, such as a local walk-in centre or your GP.
