10 Dec Norfolk hospitals stay on black alert
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, the James Paget University Hospital, in Gorleston and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, in King’s Lynn all confirmed they were on black alert yesterday after a busy Monday night.
Staff have been asked to cancel non-essential meetings and support A&E operations.
All three hospitals said they were experiencing high demand.
Anyone who is feeling unwell or who suffers a minor injury should consider calling 111 for advice, contacting their GP, or visiting one of the minor injury clinics rather than visiting A&E.
Those with potentially life threatening conditions or major injuries should continue to go to A&E.
