Norovirus is circulating in the local community!

If you have symptoms of Norovirus (diarrhoea and/or vomiting) you are urged not to attend walk-in centre, your GP or the hospital, but to remain at home until you have been clear of symptoms for 48 hours. Please call NHS 111 if you need assistance.

Emergency Department Pressures

A message from our NHS partners:


A Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust spokesman said:


“Following a very challenging couple of days, the Emergency Department at Arrowe Park Hospital continues to be very busy.


“We need the public to only use this service if their illness and injury is so serious that emergency help is urgently required.


“Our medical teams are working extremely hard to provide patients with the best possible care, but it’s crucial we keep these colleagues free to treat those who are in most need of medical attention.


“During these busy times, we need the public’s help more than ever. If your illness and injury is not a life-threatening or serious situation please do not use an Emergency Department.


“There are three conveniently placed Walk-in Centres in Wirral, such as the one in Eastham (just around the corner from Tesco) or the one next door to our Emergency Department at Arrowe Park. There is also a Walk-in Centre at Victoria Central Health Centre in Wallasey which has a Minor Injuries Unit on site too.


“For other non-emergencies, the public can also contact their GP surgery or visit their local pharmacist. For any uncertainty please contact NHS 111 by calling 111 or visit the website.”
