Help keep A&E for serious and life-threatening illnesses and injuries

03 Jan 2017 14:42:34
Right care first time

Conrad Wareham, Medical Director at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, said: “It’s incredibly busy in Rotherham Hospital’s A&E department, as it is in other hospitals across the region. We need members of the public to support us in making sure we can give vital care to people who have serious illnesses and those who have suffered major, life-threatening injuries.

“Some waiting times are in excess of four hours but we are working hard to see those most in need as quickly as possible. Choosing the right service, appropriate for your condition, will ensure you receive the best possible treatment.

“You can treat most common ailments, such as respiratory infections and diarrhoea we are seeing a lot of in the community at the moment, by staying hydrated and taking paracetamol and other over the counter remedies.

“If you do have long-standing problems or minor illnesses you should seek help from other areas such NHS 111, pharmacists, GPs or the Walk-in Centre in the first instance – saving yourself from a potential long wait in A&E.

“Thank you to everyone for your support.”
