Urgent and emergency care

We would like to reassure you that our Emergency Department (ED) at St George’s Hospital remains open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for anyone requiring emergency care.

If you require any form of urgent care, please don’t hesitate to access the treatment you need – along with ED, our specialist neuro and cardiac services are able to safely care for you if you suspect you’ve had a stroke or heart attack.

Our staff are able to safely care for anyone that requires treatment, and a number of steps have been taken to reduce the risk of infection. We are here for you, so please don’t delay if you are in urgent need of treatment.

By delaying getting the care that you need, it is possible that you are risking your long-term health.

Dr Rhys Benyon, Consultant in Emergency Care, said: “We want you to know that we’re here for you. If you’re critically ill or you have a severe injury then please do come to us. We’re ready to treat you.”

In a medical emergency, please call 999. If you need urgent medical advice, which is not life-threatening, contact NHS 111 or speak to your GP.
