Antrim Area Hospital is one of the busiest hospitals for unscheduled care services in Northern Ireland. The hospital’s state of the art emergency department, which opened in 2013, caters for approximately 90,000 patients per year. In addition, the Hospital has a Direct Assessment Unit where GPs can speak directly with medical staff to receive specialist advice and, if appropriate, to arrange a referral to the unit where treatment can begin immediately. This means people can avoid unnecessary waits in the Emergency Department.
The hospital has 346 beds available for acute care. In addition, it offers obstetrics, neonatal services, paediatrics, palliative care and renal dialysis, as well as a specialist dental unit.
The Hospital has recently opened a Programme Treatment Unit and is developing an Acute Care at Home Model and a new Paediatric Ambulatory Unit.
Causeway Hospital is one of two Northern Trust acute hospitals. The Hospital’s Emergency Department includes an area for patients brought in by ambulance, who require further investigation and treatment but may not need to be admitted to hospital. One of the latest developments at Causeway is a new Direct Assessment Unit specialising in the care of frail, older patients. A multi-agency, frailty project is also underway, aimed at engaging with and improving health and wellbeing of older people.
An Out of Hours GP service is located beside the Emergency Department at Causeway Hospital.
A new state of the art gynaecological unit, The Meadows, opened at Causeway Hospital in 2018.
With support from the Belfast Trust, a Paediatric Day Surgery service was established in Causeway, enabling local children to have surgery quicker and closer to their homes.
Both Antrim Area and Causeway Hospitals are developing medical and surgical ambulatory care models.
