We are very proud of our hospitals and our staff, and aim to provide a high quality service for our patients at all times.

We shall do our best to make your visit as comfortable as possible and our staff will do all they can to assist you. If you want to find out more about the Trust and our hospitals, please click here

The Trust continues to be under severe pressure and is asking people not to come to A&E unless they are a real emergency.

Non-emergency patients are likely to have an extremely long wait and will be taking staff away from caring for patients who need emergency or life-saving care.

The ambulance service is also extremely busy and is reminding people that 999 should only be dialled in an emergency.

Help our hospitals cope this winter, choose the right service and keep A&E free for those with serious health conditions.

 

We welcome any comments or feedback you would like to share with us. Listening to our patients helps us to get things right.
