Changes to the Queen's Hospital Burton A&E

To make sure we are best prepared over the coming days, weeks and months and to assist with social distancing, we are temporarily making some changes to the way patients are seen and cared for at Queen's Hospital Burton A&E.

  • A clinical navigator will be based in the A&E reception and will direct patients to the appropriate area.
  • All suspected Covid-19 patients will be directed to the Red Majors/ Red Resus , which is located in the old majors/resus footprint and accessible for Ambulance staff via resus doors.
  • All non-suspected Covid-19 patients will be directed to the Green Majors  – located in what was the minors area of the department, with an external entrance through the main waiting room.
  • The Minor Injuries Unit has relocated  to the Fracture Clinic and is open from 7am until Midnight.

Ambulances started using the Red and Green on 30 March 2020.
