Emergency Department

Our local Emergency Department (ED) is located in the East Wing of Southampton General Hospital.

Please note, this department is for serious injuries, life-threatening conditions and major trauma.

We therefore expect our patients to almost never need to attend ED.

It is...
  • The emergency department is not for minor illnesses (such as colds, sore throats, coughs, runny noses etc)
    → go to a pharmacy

  • NOT for minor injuries (such as sprains, simple falls, simple sports injuries)
    → go to the Urgent Care (walk in) Centre

  • NOT for obtaining repeat medication
    → call the practice or 111

  • NOT for obtaining morning-after contraception
    → visit a participating pharmacy

If you are in doubt, please call 111 and seek advice.
