This article describes the history and current status of the practice of hospital-based accident and emergency (A & E) medicine in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Included are comments on training and certification, the operations of the typical A & E department, and developments in research and academics.
Also included are the authors'thoughts on issues of future importance to A & E medicine.
