Healthwatch Cheshire publish new Winter A&E Watch Report


Following on from our initial visit in July 2017, Healthwatch Cheshire have published a new A&E Watch report focusing on pressures around delivery of NHS A&E services in the winter period.

The report is based upon visits conducted on Monday 22nd January 2018, and 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.

As in July, we were particularly interested in the route patients had taken to access A&E, but this time also looked to put more focus on people's experiences whilst in A&E amid the well documented winter pressures.
