The Emergency Care Centre at Prince Charles Hospital is part of the Acute Medicine and A&E Directorate and is located within the Emergency Care Centre. The hospital is situated within easy reach of Cardiff but also offers onsite accommodation. As a busy District General Hospital it boasts an active junior doctors' mess.
The Emergency department sees over 62,000 patients a year, with approximately 13,000 paediatric attendances. The department has a 4-bay resuscitation room, and a dedicated paediatric resuscitation bay. The Resuscitation Room utilizes wireless radiography and is equipped with point-of-care ultrasound.
The helipad is 50m of the Resuscitation Room entrance, allowing for speedier transfer of critically ill and injured patients.
The Emergency Department receives a high volume of trauma patients and critically ill patients from the surrounding area, and is a designated Major Trauma Unit in the Wales' Major Trauma Network. The Trauma Team is led by the Emergency Medicine Consultant. Complex polytrauma patients are frequently brought to the department from the surrounding road networks or the Brecon Beacons. The management of complex patients is supported by the modern Critical Care Unit which offers 8 beds . Both adult and paediatric patients are accepted to the unit, with paediatric patients being stabilized and retrieved by the regional PICU network.
