Update on System Pressures
The local healthcare system in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire continues to be under pressure and remains in a critical incident. Patients and members of the public will continue to be asked to use services wisely to ensure those patients with the greatest need can access care and support.
7 ways you can help the NHS:
- Only call 999 or attend A&E departments for serious accidents and for genuine emergencies.
- If you are unsure where you should go, NHS 111 can help – search online for “NHS 111” or dial 111 from any phone. This will make sure you are seen in the right place and by the right person.
- Consider using Urgent Treatment Centres. They can treat injuries including sprains, strains, suspected fractures, bites, cuts, scalds, and other non-life-threatening conditions. Waiting times are usually much shorter than A&E. We have UTCs at:
- Nottingham – The NHS Urgent Care Centre (next to the BBC building) is open every day from 7am-7pm. You don’t need an appointment to attend. Seaton House, London Road, Nottingham, NG2 4LA Tel: 0115 883 8500
- Newark – Newark Hospital is open 9am-10pm (last patient admitted at 9.30pm). It can be found on Boundary Road, NG24 4DE
- Ilkeston Community Hospital – is open 8am – 8pm. It can be found on Heanor Road , Ilkeston, Derbyshire, DE7 8LN. You can book into this service via 111. For other non-urgent cases, when you need medical advice and it’s not an emergency, please speak to your GP practice or a pharmacist.
4. Use the NHS App for access to a wide range of services and information, such as accessing medical records, booking and managing appointments, reviewing medication and ordering prescriptions as well as checking symptoms.
5. Flu and Covid-19 are currently circulating in the community, so stay at home if you have symptoms and get your jabs if you are eligible. More details about how to get your flu and Covid-19 jab can be found on the NHS website.
6. Members of the public can also help ease pressures by using their local pharmacy. Pharmacies can help with allergies, constipation, headaches, earaches and many other ailments.
7. Anyone who is in mental health distress should call the Mental Health Crisis Line: 0808 196 3779 – the helpline is open 24 hours a day.

Face to Face Appointment Review
Whilst we appreciate our face-to-face contacts are down, our overall contacts are up significantly as many patients with busy lives are happy to be dealt with over the phone. Throughout the pandemic we have not closed our doors or stopped seeing patients face to face but using telephone triage have managed to increase the numbers of people helped and done this in as safe a manner as possible. Reducing the numbers of people in the waiting room proved challenging to protect the most vulnerable from risk of cross infection, but those of you who have been we hope were pleased with the measures put in place. We also developed a new way of carrying out our max vaccination clinics which we have only had praise for, and we thank you for the positive feedback.
