A&E Services: Help us to help you

We are working hard here to stop the spread of COVID-19. We really need you to do your bit to help us keep you and your loved ones safe.

Our A&E department is currently open but only for those with serious or life threatening conditions such as:

  • Chest pains
  • Stroke symptoms
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Severe tummy pain or headache
  • A child who is very unwell

Andy Ennis, Chief Operating Officer at the Bolton NHS Hospital Trust, said:

“We are here for anyone who has a serious or life threatening medical condition. However, we are still dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and so it is also important for your safety that if you have more minor conditions you seek treatment elsewhere such as via your GP or NHS 111. We need to keep all our resources available for those who need us most.”

For more information visit www.111.nhs.uk or call NHS 111. Your GP practice is also still operating and you can contact them by phone if you need medical advice or support.

You cannot however, walk into your GP practice – please phone first and you may be offered a telephone appointment.
