SIGNIFICANT DEMAND AT URGENT TREATMENT CENTRES AND EMERGENCY DEPARTMENTS
Posted on 18 Jan 2022
Please note that Urgent Treatment Centres and Emergency Departments in Bromley are currently experiencing significant demand. If you have an urgent but non-life-threatening medical need, please use the NHS 111 website first https://111.nhs.uk/ rather than going straight to A&E.
NHS 111 can book you in to be seen safely in A&E, Urgent Treatment Centres, GP surgeries, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics.
Contacting NHS 111 first will also help the NHS to keep you safe by maintaining social distancing and ensure that you receive the right care in the right place, in a more timely and safe way. However, you should still dial 999 if you have a life-threatening illness or injury.
