The Emergency Department week is part of the Clinical Phase 1 for medical students on placement at

Nottingham City Hospital and the Queens Medical Centre. 




The CP1 ED handbook is a guide for what to expect during your CP1 rotation.

Please watch the video below. It gives an idea of the Emergency Department prior to some structural changes with COVID and re-structuring of our DREEAM area. We will take you on a tour on your first day with us and will highlight some of these changes. 

NEW!: Please note changes to the ED Layout from 25th March 2021.

Resus ( Redline) will move from Majors back into 'Resuscitation Area'

MU     ( Blue line) will expand to MU1 - MU3 - 30 beds

UTU   ( Yellow Line)  will share space with *HOT* area 

If in doubt, please ask.
