Student Nursing in the Emergency Department at QMC

We are the East Midland’s largest Emergency Department and the regional Major Trauma Centre. We see acutely unwell patients as well as all major trauma patients from across the region, often receiving patients from other hospitals within the East Midlands in the form of trauma transfers.

Our department exists to undertake the prompt diagnosis and treatment of all acute emergencies, providing unscheduled care for a large number of patients. On average we see 650 patients a day making our ED one of the busiest Emergency Departments in Europe. The department treats both adult and paediatric patients, the split between the proportion of those patients is approximately 25-30% paediatrics to 75-70% Adults.

Our mission is to deliver safe, caring and thoughtful care which is patient centred in line with the trusts vision of ‘working together to be the best for patients’
