Patients & Visitors

Emergency Department / A&E


Visitors in A&E

If you feel it is necessary, you can bring one other person with you - a partner, family member friend or carer, when you attend our Emergency Department.

We are following social distancing guidelines and, as a result, have less space in our Emergency Department waiting room.

At busy times, we may ask that the person accompanying you temporarily waits elsewhere until we are ready to assess you.

Patients with a physical or mental disability, who cannot attend alone or those under the age of 16 do not need to attend alone.

Code of behaviour

A code of behaviour exists to ensure a safe and friendly environment for patients, visitors and staff.

No acts of violence, swearing, threats or verbal abuse towards another patient, relative or staff member are allowed. An initial warning is given, but if the behaviour carries on, the staff, security or the police will ask the person to leave.
