Welcome to Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust

A&E extremely busy – please consider other options

Like many hospitals, we are extremely busy today.  Please help us by using other services such as minor injuries units whenever possible. Our emergency department deals with genuine emergencies, including loss of consciousness; acute confused state and fits that are not stopping; persistent, severe chest pain; breathing difficulties; severe bleeding that cannot be stopped; severe allergic reactions; severe burns or scalds; and broken bones.

Priority is always given to people with the most urgent health needs, which means anyone else will wait longer to be seen by a nurse or doctor. Therefore, we would encourage people with less urgent conditions to consider visiting a pharmacist, making a GP appointment, calling NHS 111, or using NHS Choices (www.nhs.uk) for advice about treating yourself. More advice about choosing the right service is available here.

Thank you in advance for your support.
