Changes to Attending Hospital A&E

Attending hospital A&E departments is changing. “NHS 111 First” is a new service which aims to reduce overcrowding and Covid 19 risks in hospital Accident and Emergency (A & E) departments. Patients will be asked to call NHS 111 before they go to the A & E department, NHS 111 will then book them into a time slot at A & E, or at the most appropriate local service for their needs.

Find out about the changes at an online event on Tuesday 16th February, 12(noon) to 1pm.
