Halton Healthcare provides emergency treatment to more than 120,000 people each year. The emergency departments at each of our three hospitals are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Every patient who comes to the Emergency Department (ED) is initially seen (or triaged) by a Registered Nurse.
The main role of triage is to assign priority to patients and designate the most appropriate area in the ED to receive care. Our emergency nurses are specially trained in assessing your Triage Level.
Please inform the triage nurse immediately if your symptoms change while you are waiting.
