Our doors are always open

Don't ever hesitate - we're here to help

We'd like to remind people that our doors are always open to anyone who feels they or their loved ones are in need of urgent or emergency care this bank holiday weekend. 

Our Urgent Care Centre is open 7am until 8pm, seven days a week (including bank holidays) and our Emergency Department is open 24/7, 365 days a year. 

Keep in mind that if you're waiting a long time after your initial assessment, this is because we're treating patients with more critical or life-threatening conditions. 

Note, patients with symptoms of coronavirus will have been asked by NHS 111 to attend our dedicated Coronavirus Assessment Unit which is accessed through a separate entrance. 

Don't ever hesitate, you are not a burden, we're here to help.

Please look out for more vulnerable family, friends and neighbours. In particular, children and young people, older people, people with long-term health conditions and people with learning disabilities. Please support these groups to seek help as soon as they feel unwell.

If you're not sure what to do, visit NHS 111 online - www.111.nhs.uk or phone NHS 111.
