NHS Wiltshire is urging members of the public to think twice about attending A&E, as over the past two weeks the pressure on all three of our district general hospitals has been intense.
“Too many of the attendances the region’s hospitals are regularly seeing are for common winter illnesses such as bad colds, viruses and stomach bugs. These are best looked after at home with over the counter medication, plenty of fluids, rest and recuperation - they certainly do not need a trip to A&E.”
Please make the very best use of our fantastic local pharmacies whenever you can!
