Patients are being asked to only visit A&E at Russells Hall Hospital unless they are facing a life threatening condition.
The hospital says that it is experiencing unprecedented pressure on its emergency services. It says unless patients have a genuine emergency they are asked to go to their walk in centre, GP or visit their local pharmacist.
“We are at level four capacity which means we have extreme pressure on our services, and so patients who come to our A&E department will have a very long wait,” said chief executive Paula Clark. “We would urge patients to think twice before using the emergency services at Russells Hall Hospital.”
