A&E / Minor Injuries
Derriford Hospital A&E
An emergency department is located at Derriford Hospital and is open 24hrs a day, 7 days a week for anyone seeking healthcare for an urgent medical problem related to an accident or illness. It is a walk-in service so you do not need an appointment.
The emergency department can be very busy and should be used by those patients seeking emergency medical attention. It should not be used instead of your GP, as many more minor or older problems are better treated by your own doctor.
If you need help to get someone to hospital in an emergency, telephone 999 and ask for an ambulance. Follow any instructions the ambulance service call handler may give you.
