“Our hospital is currently extremely busy, with more people attending our ED and Urgent Treatment Centre. We know that patients want to be treated as quickly as possible but we would urge you to seek advice on 111.nhs.uk to determine the most appropriate place for your healthcare needs first. This can often get you treated more quickly than you would be turning up at A&E.”
Visit 111.nhs.uk for self-care advice and guidance on how you can manage your condition.
If you have a minor health concern, contact your local pharmacy.
If you are very concerned about your condition and you are unsure what to do, call 111 to be directed to the most appropriate service. 111 can also get you a timed arrival slot at our Urgent Treatment Centre so you can stay at home until then.
If you have a very serious or life threatening condition, please continue to call 999. We will continue to treat all patients needing urgent or emergency care.
