Princess Alexandra Hospital makes appeal due to high demand
Health / Tue 13th Dec 2022 at 03:35pm
PRINCESS Alexandra Hospital is experiencing a high demand for their emergency services.
Please consider alternative services if you do not have a life-threatening illness or injury.
Their teams are here to help you, so please treat them with respect and kindness.
I think the hospital will be dest for closed down and a new hospital by the M11 with bus going tham
People need to remember that your local friendly pharmacist can assist with most ailments & injurys. They can prescribe, advise & treat minor injuries. Too many people rush to A&E when the pharmacist should be their first port of call. People often phone for an ambulance under the belief that they will be seen faster in A&E.....WRONG!! The ambulance paramedics will triage your needs on route & will advise the staff of your emergency status so you may still wait hours before you even see a doctor!! If you dont need A&E, dont go. If you can have to go, can you make your own way there? Drive, get a lift or get a mini cab & leave the 999 big yellow taxis for those who really need them!!
Well, it would help if GPs actually saw patients now. It is shocking you have to wait 3 weeks for just a telephone consultation.
80% people attending A&E dont need urgent care( statistics from 2021)!!!.thats why we cant help 20% who really need utgent help on time.
Will be helpful if GP can see you on an emergency appointments instead of send you a text like that "please attend A/E as there are no more appointments left" this is Hamilton practice Bush Fair. Who want to go to A&E really? And call 111 their refer you to you GP and finally GP have to face to face you, this a joke.
I would recommend people make a visit to the Hamstel Road entrance of PAH at 5pm any weekday and see the long line of ambulances waiting outside A&E. However, I would also suggest people recognise that the government needs to take drastic action, including paying the health workers a large increase.
The recent statement by the Labour Party's Shadow Health Secretary, Wes Streeting, will convince many NHS workers that waiting for a Labour government to sort out their pay and conditions is a forlorn hope. I expect the NHS will see even more resignations now they know the Labour Party are going to stab them in the back.
I don’t even think it’s down to people’s stupidity of going A&E when not needed anymore. It’s generally people’s last resort as GP’s are not doing their job and trying to diagnose over the phone it’s ridiculous…. Carers are still out there working and entering people’s homes so why can’t GP’s just allow for face to face visits and use PPE? Questionable I think
