Ambulatory Emergency Care

Ambulatory Emergency Care (AEC) is a service which provides same day emergency care to patients at our hospitals.

Ambulatory Care

This means that patients are assessed, diagnosed, treated and then sent home the same day with ongoing clinical follow-up as required.

Our clinic opening hours are 9am to 10pm and we are located next to A&E.

Examples of patients who might be referred to AEC include:

  • Patients who require a brief period of observation prior to safe discharge
  • Patients who require a specific test prior to safe discharge
  • Patients who are waiting for a social or psychiatric assessment or intervention prior to discharge
