An open letter to Nottingham and Nottinghamshire from your local NHS

Your local NHS is under the most strain we have ever seen – that’s why we need your help to avoid local services from being overwhelmed this New Year.

The best thing everyone can do to help is to keep physically and mentally well. That will help to avoid you and your loved ones needing hospital care in the first place.

Please also enjoy New Year responsibly – no-one wants to spend New Year in hospital!

If you do need to come to an Emergency Department, please expect a long wait to be seen.

Before coming to hospital, please remember that urgent care centres, pharmacies and NHS111 are all here to help when you need them. You can also find great advice by searching ‘NHS111’ online.

Thank you for your continued support,

Rosa Waddingham - Chief Nurse, NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire
Phil Bolton - Chief Nurse, Sherwood Forest Hospitals           
Michelle Rhodes - Chief Nurse, Nottingham University Hospitals
Ifti Majid - Chief Executive, Nottinghamshire Healthcare       
Dr Tim Noble - Executive Medical Director, Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals
