Information provided here serves as a guide only. Patients are advised they should attend their nearest emergency department if they require urgent medical attention.

Triage categories are allocated to each patient based on an assessment of their presenting conditions, generally by the triage nurse, with triage 1 being the most urgent and triage 5 being the least urgent. The average waiting time that is displayed on the web page is for patients who have been assessed as triage 4, since that is the most frequently allocated triage category. Patients are always seen in order of clinical urgency.
