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 recently opened a Medical Programme Treatment Unit and is developing an Acute Care at Home Model and a new Paediatric Ambulatory Unit.The hospital has 366 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.
