There is currently a very large number of patients in the A&E department at our local hospitals, which is putting significant pressure on health services across the borough. To ensure the most unwell patients receive the urgent treatment they need, we are urging people to avoid attending A&E at Queen’s and King George hospitals unless absolutely necessary.
If you require urgent medical advice or are unsure of where you should go for treatment, don’t hesitate to call NHS 111 who are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Extra urgent, same day GP appointments are also available this festive season, and pharmacies and walk-in centres are also open. Find out more.
