The Emergency Department (ED) is based at Leicester Royal Infirmary where we currently see 218,000 patients a year. Our Resus room sees over 12,500 patients a year with complex multi-system pathologies all of which provide an environment to practice challenging but very rewarding Emergency Medicine.

A multi-million pound rebuild of the emergency department was opened in April 2017, with phase 2 of the Emergency floor due to open in June 2018.
