Emergency Medicine

Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group has information to help you choose whether the Emergency Department is the appropriate place to come. If you are not sure, you can phone your GP, who will have out-of-hours telephone services or call NHS 111.

Accident and Emergency

The Accident and Emergency department at Watford General Hospital assesses and treats people with serious injuries and those in need of emergency treatment. It is open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. The emergency department is sometimes referred to as casualty, accident and emergency or A&E.

We aim to provide all relevant services in a timely manner and we constantly strive to meet the Government's aim to have all treatment provided within four hours. Occasionally we are extremely busy and may not manage this. If this occurs we ask for your understanding and patience. We will always treat patients in the order of clinical need.
