December 2020

This month, our pupils have been developing their skills across the curriculum by taking parts in lots of Christmas themed activities.  

‘Phone First’ is designed for patients, including children, who are feeling unwell and considering travelling to Antrim Area Hospital Emergency Department, Causeway Hospital Emergency Department or Mid Ulster Minor Injury Unit with an injury or illness which requires urgent treatment but is not immediately life threatening.

When you call the ‘Phone First’ service your condition, or that of the person you are calling on behalf of, will be clinically assessed and arrangements made for you to access the most appropriate service to your needs.  This may mean offering you an appointment at the Emergency Department or Minor Injuries Unit, organising further investigations or redirecting you to your local GP or GP Out of Hours.

The Phone First service will improve patient safety in terms of preventing overcrowding and reducing long waits in our Emergency Departments.  It will also help reduce the risk of Covid-19 infection and transmission.
