ISD Scotland has historically classified Emergency Departments as either core or non-core sites. Core sites include all Emergency Departments within large hospitals. It is important to note that, according to this classification, some core sites are large minor injuries units, such as the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh. Non-core sites include minor injuries units, small hospitals with paper-based administration systems and health centres in rural areas that carry out Emergency Department related activity. ISD Scotland has confirmed that there are 37 core Emergency Departments in Scotland, and 59 non-core Emergency Departments.
