Causeway Hospital is located on the Newbridge Road on the outskirts of Coleraine. It is one of two Northern Trust acute hospitals.  This hospital has an Emergency Department.

The Hospital’s Emergency Department includes an area for patients brought in by ambulance, who require further investigation and treatment but may not need to be admitted to hospital.

An Out of Hours GP service is located beside the Emergency Department.

A Direct Assessment Unit specialises in the care of frail, older patients. Patients are referred by their GP and it is designed to reduce hospital admissions and avoid a wait in the Emergency Department. This is a referral only service.

A multi-agency, frailty project is also underway, aimed at engaging with and improving health and wellbeing of older people.

A new state of the art gynaecological unit, The Meadows, opened at Causeway Hospital in 2018.

With support from the Belfast Trust, a Paediatric Day Surgery service was established in Causeway, enabling local children to have surgery quicker and closer to their homes.

Phone First

Due to the impact of Covid-19, and the focus on infection prevention and social distancing, a Phone First system has been introduced at the Emergency Department.  ‘Phone First’ is for patients (including children) who are unwell and considering travelling to Antrim Area or Causeway Hospital Emergency Departments (EDs) or the Mid Ulster Hospital Minor Injuries Unit, and those with an injury or illness which requires urgent treatment but is not immediately life threatening.  The system operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Phone: 0300 123 1 123
