High Levels of Demand at Wigan A&E – Hospital extremely busy

Newsdate: 18 December 2014 

Our A&E is currently very busy. We are urging the public ONLY to visit A&E if they have been involved in an accident or if it is a life threatening emergency. If you do attend with a minor injury or ailment you may have to wait a significant period of time.

We want to ensure all patients receive the right care, at the right time and in the right location. And A&E is not the right choice for minor conditions. Please consider all of the healthcare options available to you before coming to A&E. Make an appointment with your GP, attend the Walk-in Centre at Leigh, or speak to your local pharmacist. If you need non-emergency medical help outside of your GP opening hours, please contact the Out-of-Hours service on 01942 829911.
