Waiting times

The figures below indicate the current approximate times that patients in our Emergency Department or Minor Injuries Units will wait to be seen by a decision-making clinician after being assessed as a minor patient.

Please remember that, especially in Emergency Departments, we provide care to the most critical cases first; so if there are a lot of people in attendance or if your condition is not serious you could be waiting much longer.
