What we do
The Emergency Department at the BRI, the main teaching hospital

city, sees over 60,000 patients 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year.
Within the department there are nearly 40 doctors, over 100 nurses

Patients are cared for in two
main areas: minors and majors. The minors side has six
cubicles and two consulting rooms for the assessment and
treatment of ambulant patients and a dedicated plaster room. The
majors side has 10 cubicles, a side room and a six-bed
