Description - Mid Staffordshire n H S Hospitals Stafford
Emergency care is provided on two areas by Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Accident & Emergency (A&E) at Stafford Hospital and Minor Injury Unit (MIU) at Cannock Chase Hospital.
Stafford Hospital services are open for 24 hours a day, seven days a week including bank holidays. They see patients sent by their family doctor (GP), brought to hospital by ambulance or patients attending with serious injuries or illness.
Patients are assessed and given a priority on arrival you may not be seen in the order in which you arrived. If your condition is minor or easily treatable you will have to wait for patients with more severe illness to be seen.
If you are suffering from a condition that has been causing you small discomfort but you would normally visit your GP or a dentist for treatment, it may be more appropriate for you to do this than visit A&E.
If the nurses are not able to treat you they will refer you your local A& E department.
