Stoke Mandeville Accident and Emergency Department has asked that people only visit in a genuine emergency due to a high surge in attendance. They have confirmed that emergency cases will be seen in order of clinical priority so, do think before you head off there. You can get free medical advice by phoning 111 and you may be able to visit your GP or go to your local pharmacist for help; you can also use the Health Help Now Website or App. You can also go to the Minor Illness and Injury Unit at High Wycombe which we have had good feedback about – they can deal with a range of ailments from twisted ankles, cuts and bruises, to splinters, bites and stings.
Even though it is busy, there are some things that you should always go to A&E for. Bucks Healthcare Trust has provided details of when you definitely should visit A&E and more information about the situation.
Have you been to Stoke Mandeville A&E or the Minor Illness and Injury Unit at High Wycombe recently? Healthwatch Bucks needs your views.
Thanks, the team at Healthwatch Bucks!
