Our Emergency Department (A&E) can be a busy place and you should only be used in extreme circumstances. If you attend the department inappropriately, you may be turned away.
NHS 111 can help if you have an urgent medical problem and you’re not sure what to do.
Please be aware that the waiting times and the number of patients waiting to be seen are updated every 5 minutes and may have changed by the time you arrive.
The ‘current average waiting time’ refers to the current waiting time to be seen and fully assessed by a doctor or nurse practitioner.
The ‘current number of patients waiting to be seen’ refers to the number of patients waiting to be fully assessed.
Once you are seen by a doctor or nurse there may still be a wait for your treatment, especially when the department is busy with more clinically urgent patients.
