Coming to Emergency

Emergency Centre

If you have a life-threatening medical condition, call 000 and request an ambulance.

If you have an urgent gynaecological or pregnancy-related (less than 20 weeks) medical condition you can come to our Emergency Centre at 374 Bagot Road, Subiaco. It’s located on the ground floor inside the main entrance of the hospital and open 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. Follow the sign to the triage nurse or midwife.

The centre also sees women who are post-partum and new born babies.

If you are pregnant (greater than 20 weeks) and worried about yourself or your baby or you think you might be in labour, contact the Maternal Fetal Assessment Unit (MFAU) on (08) 6458 2199.

Emergency Centre admission process 

Patients are seen in order of illness severity and not in attendance order. If another patient arrives with a more serious condition, you will be required to wait. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

On arrival, see the triage nurse or midwife first. You will be asked questions to assess your condition to determine your level of priority.

Some patients will be taken straight into the department while others will be directed to the waiting room. While waiting, inform the triage midwife if your condition worsens or you decide to seek treatment elsewhere.
