Ambulatory Emergency Care (AEC) provides same-day emergency care. AEC offers easy access to tests with specialised hospital consultants, and the service aims to prevent unnecessary hospital stays, providing a better experience for patients.

Patients are expected to stay in AEC for no longer than 12 hours.

This is a day treatment service, so patients may be asked to return the following day for further treatment.

More information

Patients can be referred by the Emergency Department or in the community via your GP or walk-in centre.

Opening hours – 8am-11pm.
