The emergency department provides a 24 hour emergency service, treating around 375 new patients each day. We work closely with ambulance teams from East Midlands and West Midlands Ambulance Services, and staff from other wards in the hospital, to ensure patients are seen, treated and either discharged home or admitted within four hours – the national target time for each patient.
In May 2015, we were named the national winner of the CHKS 'Excellence in A&E' award. Judges said they were “impressed by the Trust’s clear focus on patient experience and their ability to demonstrate compassionate care and good outcomes”.
Facilities at our emergency department include:

Nearest car park: 4
Blue badge parking: There are 2 free parking spaces outside ED, limited to 3 hours. There is also a disabled car park under the Kings Treatment Centre.
