Accident and Emergency

Call: 0141 414 6530

Opening Hours: Opened 24 hours

This is an Emergency Department. We prioritise people who have a serious injury or accident or who have a sudden serious illness or medical condition. It may be more appropriate and you may be seen more quickly by your GP or another health care professional rather than waiting for treatment here.

If you think that someone’s life is at risk you should call 999 right away.

A&E and Minor Injuries Services are available in a number of locations. Use our postcode finder to see which is the right one for you.

You can attend your local Minor Injury Unit (MIU) to get urgent care for a minor injury including sprains, burns and simple fractures. MIUs are run by highly experienced Emergency Nurse Practitioners who will assess and either treat a minor injury or, if they find a more serious problem, arrange for you to be transferred elsewhere.

Children with serious illnesses and injuries who are less than one year of age should be taken to the Royal Hospital for Children, Govan, Glasgow. Children from one year on should either go to your designated A&E department or to the Royal Hospital for Children.

You can find out more about which conditions may be seen and treated more quickly elsewhere from our Know who to turn to pages.
