Our local Emergency Department (ED) is located in the West Wing of Southampton General Hospital.
Please note, we expect our patients to almost never need to attend ED. This department is for serious injuries, life-threatening conditions and major trauma.
It is DEFINITELY NOT for minor illnesses (such as colds, sore throats, coughs etc), NOT for minor injuries (such as sprains, simple falls, simple sports injuries) and NOT for obtaining repeat medication or morning-after contraception.
Please choose wisely and visit a pharmacy, call 111 or visit the minor injuries unit for non-emergency problems.
