University Hospitals Bristol Nhs Foundation Trust Statement Weather Conditions

05 February 

The Trust, which runs eight city centre hospitals including the Bristol Royal Infirmary, reports business as usual today, despite the severe weather conditions.

The Trust has comprehensive contingency plans to deal with the effects of bad weather and these are being put into place. 

Yesterday (Wednesday 5 February), the Bristol Royal Infirmary Accident and Emergency (A&E) department saw 166 patients and 50 of these were due to a fall with some kind of ankle, wrist, knee or arm injury.  These figures are slightly higher than usual.

We are urging people not to attend A&E departments with minor ailments.  Call NHS Direct on 0845 4647 for help and advice or contact your GP.
