Emergency health care at the QE
In a life threatening emergency, phone 999 for an ambulance to take you straight to Accident and Emergency (A+E).
There is one point of access for healthcare at the Queen Elizabeth, rather than the separate A+E and walk in centre that was on our site before.
There are two ways to access emergency care at the QE, you will either be brought to us in an ambulance, this is for people with major injuries, life threatening illnesses and urgent medical emergencies, or you can walk in through our new emergency care centre entrance.
It doesn't matter whether you think you need A+E or a walk in centre type service, we have one reception and one system through which you will be seen.
The Emergency Care Centre is open 24 hours per day and can be contacted on 0191 445 2171.
Please remember that the emergency services are very busy and you should only come to the Emergency Care Centre if you need urgent medical attention.
