A&E

A&E IS OPEN FOR URGENT AND EMERGENCY CARE

Even though we are playing our part in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, our A&E Department is still open for urgent and emergency care. 

During the pandemic, you or a family member could still need medical help for other conditions. If you feel you or a family are too unwell to stay at home or may have another condition that requires urgent care, please contact NHS111 who will advise you on what to do. 

If you do need urgent or emergency care, our A&E Department is still open and available to you.

Please call 999 or go to A&E in a medical emergency. This is when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.


Call 999 immediately if you or someone else is having a heart attack or stroke. Every second counts with these conditions.

Also call 999 if you think someone has had a major trauma, such as after a serious road traffic accident, a stabbing, a shooting, a fall from height, or a serious head injury.

Remember – If you think you may have coronavirus please do not come to the hospital. Visit NHS111 online coronavirus service. They can tell you if your child needs medical help and advise you on what to do.
