Update on response to A385 incident

NHS online - 111.nhs.uk

Our staff at Derriford Hospital continue to be extremely busy following yesterday's incident in which a double-decker bus overturned on the A385.

As the Peninsula Major Trauma Centre, we were amongst the hospitals receiving and treating the 37 patients being cared for across the South West. This has impacted both on Emergency Department and our critical care beds.

If you have a medical emergency, we are still here for you but if you need urgent care, please visit one of our Minor Injury Units or seek advice from NHS 111 by phone or online.

Thank you for your continued help and patience at this time.
