Are you a patient or visitor?

The Emergency Department (ED) at St. Vincent’s University Hospital is open 24 hours a day 365 days a year for patients aged 16 years and over. Priority is given to patients with life-threatening injuries or illnesses but we will ensure that we see all patients in a timely manner. Children under the age of 16 will need to seek emergency care at their nearest paediatric emergency department.

The Emergency Department is located by the Nutley Lane entrance at St. Vincent’s University Hospital. Find out how to get here if you’re travelling by private or public transport. Follow our step by step guide and on what to expect as a patient or visitor. Visit our Post Emergency Department Clinics if your treatment requires follow up.
