Changes to Emergency Department

We are now in the middle of building a brand new Emergency Department and have therefore had to temporarily move our Adult Emergency Department.  Please visit the Trust's website for more information.  Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused whilst we make improvements to our facilities. 

This building work also affects the entrance to the Fracture Clinic.  A new temporary entrance has been built at the back of the building - please follow signage.
