How Busy are our Emergency Departments ?

Emergency Departments and Minor Injuries UnitsHospital Emergency Departments are busy places designed to care for those who have serious or life threatening conditions.


For life-threatening emergencies please call 999 or go straight to your nearest Emergency Department.

Did you know there are alternatives to the Emergency Department?

Please consider an alternative to ED for minor injuries and illnesses. This will allow ED staff to look after people with serious or life-threatening conditions.

The Minor Injuries Units web page will give you the location, opening hours and types of conditions these units can treat.

The Choose Well link provides information on alternatives to hospital care.
