A&E Emergency Department
Your local A&E department is at the Queens Medical Centre on Derby Road in the City.
A&E is a vital and busy service, which should only be used in a medical emergency – usually defined as a critical or life threatening situation. If you or somebody close to you needs emergency treatment you should call 999 straight away. A medical emergency might include severe chest pain, stroke or serious accident.
The emergency department assess and treats patients with serious injuries or illnesses. You should only visit A&E or telephone 999 in real emergencies.
Emergency situations might include: loss of consciousness, severe breating, heavy bleeding, severe chest pain, possible broken bones, deep wounds, stroke, swallowed something harmful or poisonous or taken a drug overdose.
If you feel that your condition is not urgent but you want some advice and support from a healthcare professional then call 111. They can signpost you to any out of hours services or, where appropriate, to your local walk in centre in Nottingham.
