Patients & Visitors

Emergency Department / A&E


Visitors in A&E

Please note that patients arriving at our A&E department are asked to come on their own.

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

You can be accompanied by a partner, family member, friend or carer, if:

  • You are a patient with a physical or mental disability, who cannot attend alone
  • You are under the age of 16

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.
