The Emergency Department (ED) at Blackpool Victoria Hospital is one of the busiest in the country. It provides a full range of services for the 352,000 residents of Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde and the 18.2 million annual visitors to the resort. The department sees approximately 75,214 patients each year. The ED works collaboratively with the Urgent Care Centre which combines minor injuries, illnesses and primary care facilities for non-emergency cases and the ED for more serious or life threatening cases requiring immediate treatment.
The Emergency Department service is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year and provides care to self-referred patients and those brought in by ambulance. The department liaises closely with all other specialities within the hospital.
