The A&E Services provides ready access to emergency nursing and medical care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The department provides clinical services to treat the range of problems with which patients present as an emergency or urgently, from life-threatening conditions to minor injury and illness, in all age groups from babies to the elderly. All emergency cases will be attended by our experienced Medical Officers and a team of highly experienced nurses. We aim to keep patients fully informed about their investigations and treatment, and in doing so facilitating patient involvement in decisions about their treatment. We undertake continuous self-monitoring to ensure that patients are both treated promptly and made as comfortable as possible during their stay.
