Please consider if your situation is a genuine emergency before coming to the Emergency Department (ED).
The ED has several different treatment areas that include:
- Resuscitation – where the most seriously ill patients are treated
- Acute – where patients with severe or potentially severe conditions are treated
- Cubicles – where patients with less acute problems are treated
- Paediatrics – where small children are treated
Our priority is to always provide treatment to people who are seriously ill, in pain or are suffering.
Please call 000 in an emergency.
You can also call Canberra Hospital on 02 5124 0000, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
