Warning over “extremely busy” A&E wards

“Lincolnshire A&E departments are extremely busy”, warned community health services.

Lincolnshire East Clinical Commissioning Group posted an alert on social media to make patients aware that A&Es across the county were under strain on Tuesday, May 22.

“Please do not attend A&E unless it is an emergency”, the CCG posted on Twitter. “For all other medical needs, please try NHS 111, your GP or a local pharmacy.”
