PRUH Emergency Department extremely busy

12 March 2018 - Please help us manage demand for emergency care

Exterior of the front of Princess Royal University Hospital

We are experiencing extremely high patient numbers in the Emergency Department at the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH). As always, we will prioritise the most unwell patients. However, those in less urgent need of care may experience significantly longer waiting times than normal.

Please help us manage demand for emergency care by using the service wisely. Where appropriate, please consider other healthcare alternatives to A&E such as visiting your pharmacist or GP, calling NHS 111 or using NHS Choices.
