The Emergency Department based at The Royal Oldham Hospital was opened in 1989 and includes:-

7 'high priority' treatment cubicles

1 mental health assessment room

4 bedded resuscitation bay

1 major trauma bay

A paediatric resuscitation room

A paediatric minor treatment area with play and toilet facilities

4 'low priority' treatment cubicles

4 doored cubicles and separate waiting area for minor injuries/illness ("Kumar Suite")

A plaster room

A physiotherapy room

Dedicated 8 bedded observation ward

A seminar room

Office and secretarial space


The department is housed in the phase 1 development close to emergency radiology and operating theatres and critical care departments and acute medical wards including a medical admissions unit.  A paediatric inpatient facility is also based on this site.

We are currently undergoing a major refurbishment which should see us with a dedicated Paediatric area and more space to see patients. Please bear with us during this rather stressful and space depleted time. Learn more
