What happens in the case of non-emergency attendances
You have attended A&E with
- A condition that has been present for more than 3 days
- A condition with which you have already consulted your own General Practitioner
The senior doctor on duty will come and speak to you and make a decision on whether you will be seen in A&E, they may then advise you to make arrangements to see a General Practitioner. We will attempt to do this as soon as possible, but you may have to wait if the senior doctor is busy attending to emergency patients. If you decide to leave and make arrangements to see a GP, please advise a nurse or a member of the reception staff.
If the senior doctor decides that you should be seen in A&E, you will be seen in order of clinical priority and are likely to have to wait.
To allow us to deal effectively with emergency patients, it is essential that patients with non-emergency conditions make arrangements to see their GP.
