New entrance for Emergency Department at GRH

1 Dec 2022, 11:11 a.m.

The first of the new areas that will eventually come together to create a state-of-the-art Emergency Department at Gloucestershire Royal opened today (1 December).

In a significant milestone in the GRH development, there's a new entrance for walk-in patients attending our Emergency Department at GRH.

The Children’s Emergency Department is now available there too having moved from its long-term temporary home in the main atrium.

We continue to urge everyone who requires urgent care to click or call 111 to have their needs assessed before attending our Emergency Departments at Gloucestershire Royal or Cheltenham General. People should only call 999 or visit the two A&E Departments if it’s a life-threatening situation or a serious injury. Please show respect and kindness towards all our staff and remember that they are doing their very best to help you.
