A&E Alternatives

25th Nov 2019

Did you know, there are various other resources available to parents other than A&E?

Non-urgent patients visiting our A&E department could face lengthy waiting times.

If your case isn't urgent, there are a number of things you can do instead of coming to A&E. You can go to your local walk-in centre, your GP/pharmacy or try self care.

If you're unsure of what the best route for you to take is, you can always call 111 for advice from NHS experts.

You can find your nearest NHS service and book an appointment online on the NHS website here.

You can also check out our advice on how to deal with common conditions such as coughs and colds here.

If you are coming to A&E, you can check the live waiting times on the official NHS Live Wait Times app available on both Apple and Android devices (links below).
