Please see the following communication sent by NHS colleagues for your information.


Birmingham Children’s Hospital’s Emergency Department has been under significant, sustained pressure due to high levels of respiratory infections locally and unprecedented attendances.

Across the country, Children’s EDs are seeing approximately a 20% increase on previous record attendances, with a number of units reporting a lack of beds for paediatric admissions.

The Children’s Hospital Emergency Department is incredibly busy – those who are not seriously ill will face very long waits to be seen and may need to go elsewhere for help.


Remember, the Children’s Hospital Emergency Department can’t help with dental or eye issues.

For an eye emergency, please attend the Midland Eye Centre at Dudley Road open 9am-7pm.

NHS 111 can help with finding and accessing an Emergency Dentist
