What happens at the A&E?

  • Once you’re at the A&E, please register at reception. A doctor or nurse will assess your condition and decide on further action – this is called triage.
  • You may then be referred to one of our units; minor injuries, major injuries or ambulatory emergency care.
  • We also have a clinical decisions unit for patients who need more care but don’t need to be admitted to hospital.
  • Within these units we are able to access all other hospital departments to offer medical and surgical assessments and urgent treatment.

There is an operational standard in place for A&E services, where majority of people attending any A&E department should be seen, diagnosed and treated within the time set upon the arrival.
