Some of our services have changed due to COVID-19. Click here for details

The NGH ED is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Relatives and visitors of patients are free to attend at any time. Please however restrict attendances to the ED to relevant visits as the ED is frequently extremely busy with free space at a premium.
Telephoning the ED to enquire about your relative is also possible but please restrict the calls to important or urgent queries only, due to the busy nature of the department. We are also bound by confidentiality laws which may restrict the information given over the phone, especially clinical information. 

We are unable to give ED patient waiting times over the telephone.
