The local health board has this afternoon (Thursday) put out a warning on social media about how busy the A&E departments are at hospitals across north Wales, including the Wrexham Maelor.
Posted on the Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board Facebook page this says: "Our Emergency Departments at Glan Clwyd Hospital, Ysbyty Gwynedd and Wrexham Maelor Hospital are extremely busy at present.
"The department has to prioritise the most seriously injured patients who need urgent care. Minor injuries and illnesses can be treated: • at your local Pharmacy, • at a Minor Injury Unit, • by contacting the NHS Direct Wales helpline, open 24/7, • by contacting your GP, or • by contacting the C.A.L.L. helpline 24/7 for anyone concerned about their own mental health or that of a relative or friend.
"By choosing the most appropriate health care service for you needs, you will not only be helping your local NHS services during the COVID-19 pandemic, but you might also be seen quicker.
"Information can be found on our website: https://bcuhb.nhs.wales/health-services/health-services1/where-do-i-go/?fbclid=IwAR3SahsmDo23slYTPu3icQbe_V7u_kyc1HKKpo8wStlpq0BTr97avGypSVs
