Update on the local health and social care system 2017-01-09
Today, and over the weekend, we have seen
some signs of improvement in the local health and social care
system across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire and
have reduced the formal operational pressures escalation level
(OPEL) to level 3.
The local health and social care system remains under
significant pressure however and partners are continuing to work
together to manage demand and restore capacity.
Members of the public can support this by using the most
appropriate NHS services for their needs, and by using A&E and
999 for serious and life-threatening emergencies only.
