 Published on: 5th January 2016   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Accident & Emergency department at Watford Hospital is unprecedentedly busy, in the post-holiday period and were turning away patients with minor injuries. The service has since resumed. A statement from West Hertfordshire hospital NHS trust read: We have resumed treating adults with minor ailments at Watford Hospital but the adults’ Accident & Emergency department remains extremely busy. “Children’s and maternity services remain unaffected. “We encourage all adult patients whose conditions are not likely to be life-threatening to consider visiting our Urgent Care Centre at Hemel Hempstead Hospital (open 24/7) or the Minor Injuries Unit at St Albans Hospital (open 9am to 8pm). Patients from the Pinner and Northwood area can visit the Minor Injuries Unit at Mount Vernon Hospital (open 9am to 8pm). “We also encourage local people to consider consulting their local pharmacy, GP or ringing NHS 111 for advice.” Were you affected by this?
