Our Services A - Z - A&E - Accident & Emergency

About the service

The department remains the busiest on Merseyside, seeing and treating over 140,000 patients per year.

We have five main areas:

  • Resuscitation area
  • Major treatment
  • Paediatrics
  • Minor injuries
  • SDEC (Same Day Emergency Care)

The department is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Emergency Department is very busy and is for patients with major injuries, life threatening illnesses and medical emergencies.

If you are unsure whether the Emergency Department is the right place for you to get treatment, you can call 111 or visit the NHS website.
