Our Minor Injuries Units deal with problems such as suspected fractures, cuts, bruises, minor eye problems, burns, scalds, and sprains. If you need advice on the best place to go to treat your illness, call 111.

Our hospitals' Emergency Department (better known as A&E) is a busy place. The live information below gives you an at-a-glance view of how busy each Emergency and Urgent Care Department is.
Waiting times at emergency departments can change significantly and quickly without warning, and therefore the times given below are not a guarantee of how long you will actually wait.
You will be seen in the emergency department based on your medical condition which is assessed by a member of staff when you first arrive. Please note that patients will be seen in order of priority, not in order of arrival.
