The Emergency Department at both Chorley and South Ribble Hospital and Royal Preston Hospital provides emergency care and treatment 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

A helicopter pad at Royal Preston Hospital enables patients being transported by air ambulance to quickly access medical attention.

We also provide the Major Trauma Centre for Lancashire and South Cumbria with almost all major trauma patients being admitted via the Emergency Department.

If you are feeling unwell or are injured please Choose Well – one in every four people who attend a hospital emergency department could have more appropriately self-treated or accessed an alternative local health service.  Please Choose Well to ensure vital healthcare services are available to those in critical need.

If you need to attend the Emergency Department you will generally have an initial assessment, and will be seen by an emergency nurse practitioner who is trained to diagnose patients and provide appropriate treatment.  Specialist emergency medicine consultants also provide care, and the emergency department team will ensure you are transferred to the right service or department following assessment and necessary treatment.  We provide separate Emergency Department facilities for children.

Patients who are brought to the Emergency Department by ambulance will be transferred directly to an assessment area.
