Choose the right care for your needs: Remember that Princess Alexandra Hospital’s Emergency Department is for urgent and life-threatening cases only. In most cases when you need medical help fast, but it’s not an emergency, you can get help and advice from professionals before attending A&E. For instance, you should consider visiting your local pharmacy or GP, or calling NHS 111.
NHS 111 is free from mobiles and landlines 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Trained advisors will assess your symptoms, offer medical advice and direct you to the most appropriate healthcare service.
The A&E department at Princess Alexandra Hospital is NOT the right place to go to if you’re suffering from common winter ailments, such as coughs, colds, fever or diarrhoea and vomiting.
EBOLA Virus: If you have recently returned from Guinea, Liberia, or Sierra Leone and feel unwell within 21 days of coming back and have a fever, headache, joint and muscle pain, a sore throat, and intense muscle weakness, or you have cared for someone with Ebola and you have the above symptoms, you should stay at home, do not touch anyone and immediately call 111.
