The Emergency Department (ED) at the Royal is the biggest and busiest in Merseyside.
All patients that come to our Emergency Department will be seen and assessed by a qualified member of the nursing team, subject to a national set of assessment guidelines, a decision will be made as to which area of the department will best suit your clinical needs.
The Royal Liverpool University Hospital has the city’s emergency department.
The service is a 24-hour, seven day a week walk-in service.
This means you do not need to book an appointment. A comprehensive emergency service is provided including on-site senior accident and emergency staff, triage, nurse practitioners, trauma team, CT scanning, cardiac arrest team, decontamination facilities and specialist opinion from all major specialties.
A&E is a service for patients who have an emergency that cannot be dealt with at one of the walk-in clinics noted above or by an appointment with your GP. Due to high demand, please only attend A&E if you have a genuine emergency.
A&E is accessible via Mount Vernon Street (L7 8YE), off Prescot Street. Please do not attend the old Royal Liverpool University Hospital A&E.
