The Health Minister Lesley Griffiths said it is worth noting that exceptional pressure on A&E departments is "not a Wales-only problem", but is also happening in England.
"The public have an important part to play at this challenging time for emergency care services by using the most appropriate healthcare service to their needs and thinking before attending the Accident and Emergency Department or dialling 999."
"NHS staff continue to work extremely hard to care for patients during this period of pressure on hospital and emergency services, and my officials will continue to monitor the situation closely.”
