When you arrive at the emergency department as a patient, after registration you will be assessed by a nurse who will determine the nature of your illness or injury and how urgent it is for you to be seen.
During this assessment if necessary you will be seen by one of the specialist areas of our emergency department according to the nature of your injury/illness.
• Resuscitation – for people with life threating injuries or illness
• Majors – for people with very urgent injuries or illness
• Minors – for people with less urgent injuries or illness
• Primary care – for people whose injuries or illness can be assessed by a GP
People who need further treatment will be admitted to a hospital ward. Most people will be able to leave A&E after treatment.
