Emergency and Urgent Services

Our Emergency Department is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Emergency departments assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should visit our Emergency Department or call 999 for emergencies, such as:

loss of consciousness
pain that is not relieved by simple analgesia,
acute confused state,
persistent, severe chest pain, or
breathing difficulties

If an ambulance is needed, call 999, the emergency phone number in England. You can also dial 112, which is the equivalent for the European Union.


At our Emergency Department a doctor or nurse will assess your condition and decide on further action. You usually have to wait before you are seen, particularly on Friday or Saturday nights. We aim to try to see, diagnose and treat 95% of people within four hours of arrival. Please remember that everyone is assessed on clinical need so people will not always been seen in the order that they arrive.


Access by car is from Grafton Street. Pedestrian access is from Upper Brook Street.
