Remember - A&E means Accident and Emergency NOT Anything and Everything.
Poor use of A&E costs the NHS in Lincolnshire £2 million a year. That could treat around 500 heart attack patients, treat 500 stroke admissions or buy 250 hip replacements.
Before you decide to go to A&E think, could you...
- Visit your local Pharmacist.
- Call your GP.
To find your nearest A&E, see local LIVE waiting times and for more information visit http://www.ulh.nhs.uk/for_patients/, or click on the link below.
Remember call 111 (out of normal Surgery hours) or your GP (during Surgery hours) when it's less urgent than 999.
