Royal Hampshire County Hospital Emergency Department pathway during COVID-19

Think before you visit

For illnesses that are not life-threatening you should first contact your GP surgery. Outside of normal surgery hours you can still phone your GP, but you will usually be directed to an out-of-hours service. The out-of-hours period is from 6.30pm to 8am on weekdays, and all day at weekends and on bank holidays.

Less severe injuries can be treated in our Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) which can treat patients with less serious ailments without an appointment.

You can also call NHS 111 if you need medical advice or to tell you which is the best local service to offer you the care you need. Find out more about alternatives to the Emergency Department and local services.  

If you need an ambulance, please call 999.
