How you can seek help

Our hospital remains busy and we need your help to protect local NHS services for those most in need. 

It's really important that you visit the nhs 111 website at in the first instance, for self-care advice and guidance on how you can manage your condition.

If your condition isn't serious and you can wait to be seen, please contact your local pharmacy or GP. 

If you are very concerned about your condition and you are unsure what to do during this time, please call 111 to be directed to the most appropriative alternative service for your healthcare needs.

If you have a very serious or life threatening condition, please continue to call 999. We will continue to treat all patients needing emergency care in our Emergency Department.

Please remember that we are here to help you. Our staff are doing their very best to care for every patient and we will not tolerate any verbal or physical abuse against our staff.
