Student Nursing in the Emergency Department at QMC

We are the East Midland’s largest emergency department and the regional Major Trauma Centre. We see acutely unwell medical patients as well as all Major trauma patients from across the region, often receiving patients from other hospitals within the East Midlands in the form of Trauma transfers.

Our department exists to undertake the prompt diagnosis and treatment of all acute emergencies, providing unscheduled care for a large number of patients. On average (2019) we see 650 patients a day making our ED one of the busiest Emergency Departments in Europe. The split between adult & Paediatrics is approx.; 25-30% paediatrics to 75-70% Adults.

Our mission is to deliver safe, caring and thoughtful healthcare which is patient centred in line with the trusts vision of ‘working together to be the best for patients’

We welcome you to our team, and look forward to working with you!
