Royal Stoke A&E

Royal Stoke University Hospital is a regional centre for emergency and major trauma care.

We are here for people in need of highly-specialised emergency care when time matters and lives are saved thanks to the skill, experience and commitment of our teams.

Our Emergency Department is one of the busiest in the country which regularly sees 400 or more patients per day.

Only come to our ED at Royal Stoke Hospital if it's for serious, life-threatening conditions that need immediate medical attention such as persistent severe chest pain, loss of consciousness, acute confused state, severe blood loss, serious burns, broken bones, suspected stroke.

For non-emergencies, there are a variety of appropriate and timely services for patients who require urgent and emergency care which is not life threatening and will be able to help resolve your issue much quicker than ED which can be busy and subject to long waits.
