If you are acutely unwell then please go to the hospital.
On Friday I spoke to Richard Beeken, the Chief Exec of Manor Hospital, and he told me that there has been a 50% reduction in people attending A&E.
He’s concerned that people might be staying away because they are worried about being a burden on the NHS, or because they are worried about catching COVID-19.
This may cause acute problems to get even worse, so he’s asked that people don’t stay away if they have serious medical issues.
Walsall Manor hospital is open for business, and your health is their business.
