Avoid going to A&Estethoscope

The accident and emergency service is not for general or routine use. Many issues dealt with at the hospital can be dealt with at the surgery.  A GP can then refer a patient on as necessary. Please remember there is also the 111 service out of hours.

However…

Whatever the day or time, if you or someone else experiences severe chest pain, loss of blood or suspected broken bones, go to your nearest Accident and emergency department or call 999.
