Changes to Emergency Department access

From 8.00am on Wednesday 25 January, patients arriving at the Great Western Hospital in need of urgent or emergency care should enter the hospital via the Urgent Treatment Centre.

Patients arriving by ambulance will continue to be taken directly to the Emergency Department, via the current ambulance route to the back of the hospital.

This is so that work can begin to develop our urgent and emergency care service.

The Urgent Treatment Centre is open from 7.00am to 10.00pm.

If a patient arrives outside of these hours, they will need to use the new out-of-hours entrance, which is located adjacent to the Urgent Treatment Centre.
