Lister A&E in Stevenage is redirecting patients to the New QEII in Welwyn Garden City
The A&E department at Lister Hospital has received a very high number of seriously unwell and injured people over the past 24 hours.
The hospital has asked patients to go to the Urgent Care Centre at the New QEII Hospital in Welwyn Garden City, to avoid long waits for adults with minor injuries and illnesses.
In a statement released by the hospital, patients who are unsure about the status of their condition should call the NHS on 111 to find out which is the best service to go to locally.
