Delivering quality care amidst winter pressures

03 January 2018

Our dedicated staff are working around the clock to continue to deliver high-quality care to our patients despite the current winter pressures affecting hospitals across the country.

Our dedicated staff are working around the clock to continue to deliver high-quality care to our patients despite the current winter pressures affecting hospitals across the country.

We are focussing our efforts on ensuring we are discharging patients as efficiently as possible, to make beds available for those who are most sick.

At present, any patients with planned procedures at our hospitals can assume they’re going ahead as scheduled, unless the patient has been contacted and informed otherwise.

We remind people that A&E is for genuine emergencies. In the first instance, we recommend calling the free NHS helpline on 111 for urgent medical advice.

Members of the public can help by making sure they’re vaccinated against the flu and following NHS advice on staying well during winter.
