Worcestershire Royal 'exceptionally busy' with people urged to call 111 or visit minor injuries units

Rob George 24th Mar, 2022

UNDER-PRESSURE health chiefs have asked residents to consider whether they need to attend Accident and Emergency at the ‘exceptionally busy’ Worcestershire Royal.

Along with the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch, the Royal’s emergency department is again under strain with long waits anticipated.

As a result, health bosses have issued a plea to help them treat the most seriously-ill patients as quickly as possible by asking residents to either call 111 for urgent health advice or the county’s five Minor Injuries Units.

MIU’s can be found in Bromsgrove, Evesham, Kidderminster, Malvern and Tenbury which offer urgent care with much shorter waits.
