Healthwatch Cheshire publish A&E Visit Report


Healthwatch Cheshire have published a report focusing on pressures around delivery of NHS A&E services.

The report provides a snapshot view of the three A&E departments in Cheshire, including the Countess of Chester Hospital in Cheshire West and Leighton Hospital in Cheshire East where many residents from the Vale Royal area attend.

We were particularly interested in the route patients had taken to access A&E, and assess how this compares to the perception that people are seemingly using A&E as their first port of call with patients presenting at their local department with problems that are not necessarily appropriate for A&E and would be better served by non-urgent care or self-care.
