Temporary Night-time Closure of Weston Hospital Accident & Emergency Department

Due to manning and safety concerns, the Accident and Emergency Department at Weston General Hospital will be closed at night-time commencing 4th July 2017 between the hours of 10 p.m. and 8 a.m.

During the temporary overnight closure, local people should:

Call non-emergency NHS 111 to be directed to the best medical care for needs
Call 999 for any serious or life-threatening conditions

The department will remain fully open in the day between 8am and 10pm, the times when about 80% of people who use Weston’s A and E service attend.

 

All other Weston hospital services are unaffected.
