WINTER PRESSURES


Harrogate District Hospital is experiencing unprecedented high levels of admissions and would ask members of the public to only use the A&E Department if emergency medical attention is needed. We would always encourage the public to consider using other services that are available to ensure that patients with emergency conditions can be seen as soon as possible. 


 


For patients with non-emergency symptoms please visit your community Pharmacist for advice or look online for advice at https://www.nhs.uk/pages/home.aspx  


 


If you feel you need medical attention but are unsure where to turn, please contact NHS 111. If you feel that you do need to see a clinician, please consider ringing your GP practice to book an appointment with them or request an appointment at the extended hours Primary Care Hubs in Harrogate (and Ripon if you are a Ripon patient) which are open on Saturday morning. NHS 111 is still available when the practice is closed if you feel you need out of hours non-emergency medical help and advice.


 

When We Are Closed

closed_signIf you have an emergency requiring medical advice outside the surgery opening hours please ring 111 (NHS 111)

You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life-threatening situation.

The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses and paramedics. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an out of hours doctor, an urgent care centre  or a walk-in centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist  or a late opening chemist.

If NHS 111 advisers think you need an ambulance, they will immediately arrange for one to be sent to you.

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
