Emergency Department

The Emergency Department offers emergency assessment and treatment to patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should only visit your nearest Emergency Department or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies, such as, loss of consciousness, acute confused state and fits that are not stopping, persistent, severe chest pain, breathing difficulties or severe bleeding that cannot be stopped.

The service is Consultant-led, and supported by a wide range of other Medical and Nursing staff.

The department also offers a Paediatric Emergency service, for the assessment and treatment of Children and young adults up to the age of 18. This Paediatric Emergency Department is located within the main Emergency Department on C level.

As a provider of unscheduled care, the CSC continues to review the services provided in order to manage demand and improve patient satisfaction and safety.

Updates on our future developments will be provided via this website accordingly.
