Our A&E is very busy. Please only attend in an emergency. Non-emergent cases can face significant waiting times to be seen and treated. 

If you’re unsure, visit http://111.nhs.uk to find the right service and advice for your health needs.  

You can also visit an Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) for minor injuries or see a pharmacist, depending on your medical need.
