Our emergency departments are for serious illnesses and injuries
If you dont't need emergency treatment you may be turned away
and directed to a different service.
Visit www.111.nhs.uk who
will direct you to the care you need.
To protect our patients, visitors and our workforce we have a
number of safety measures in place.
We have two separate emergency departments at both University
Hospital of North Durham and Darlington Memorial Hospital.
There is a 'respiratory' department for patients with COVID-19
and 'non-respiratory' department for all other emergencies.
If you come into one of our emergency departments and you need
to be admitted then you will be tested for COVID-19, even if you
have no symptoms.
Our emergency departments follow all infection prevention and
control recommendations, including social distancing, to help
protect our patients,visitors and our staff.
'I am writing to congratulate you on your wonderful staff you
have working for you at DMH.'
