The Emergency Department (ED) is a unique working environment. It will throw you in at the deep end, testing your diagnostic and risk juggling skills, whilst being the most supported environment you’re likely to work in. We work closely with most other specialties, and we are the specialty that provides the barometer for the rest of the trust. If the ED provides poor care or compassion, the rest of the patient’s journey will be affected. We’re important! The ED will provide you with opportunity to hone practical and procedural skills. Never underestimate the importance of excellent communication – in the ED you’ll see what a difference it can make.
