The Northern Health and Social Care Trust has issued an appeal for people not to attend the Emergency Department at the Causeway Hospital if their complaint is not urgent.

A spokesperson for Northern Health And Social Care Trust said “Causeway Hospital Emergency Department (ED) is extremely busy, due to a high number of people attending and sick patients being treated in the Department while waiting to be admitted into a ward. Please do NOT attend the ED unless you are seriously ill or injured and need to be treated immediately. If your complaint isn’t urgent or life threatening, please consider using other services https://bit.ly/23KOZma.

Everyone presenting at an ED is assessed by a triage nurse within 15 minutes of arriving and then seen in order of clinical priority, the most serious cases are always seen first. Our staff are working very hard and we thank them for all their efforts.”
