Our Emergency Department treats and cares for people with a serious injury or life-threatening condition.
If you or someone near you has a life-threatening medical emergency, call 999 immediately or go to your nearest emergency department.
- you should not go to an Emergency Department as an alternative to your GP
- calling 999 for an ambulance does not get you to the top of an ED queue – patients are seen based on medical need, not who gets to the hospital first
Ulster Hospital Emergency Department Relatives Line
Keeping families and next of kin updated on their relative’s condition while they are being treated in the Emergency Department is a new initiative being rolled out at the Ulster Hospital.
A dedicated ‘relatives’ phoneline has now been installed in the Emergency Department in the hospital to allow families to check up on their loved ones and receive updates on their condition and the care they are receiving.
The phoneline will be manned by administration staff within the Emergency Department and will operate between 9am-3pm, Monday to Friday (including Bank Holidays). The number to call is (028) 9030 6060.
