It's the busiest time of the year in A&E

This is the time of year when A&E is at its busiest and we all see that A&E nurses are superheroes! Demand traditionally peaks on Boxing Day and 29th December, as the nurses and other health care professionals in A&E attend to patients with life threatening conditions as well as many with less serious ailments. 

The advice from NHS England and the Royal College of Emergency Medicine reminds people suffering from viral coughs, flu and minor ailments to recover at home, leaving A&E doctors and nurses free to help those with life threatening illness.
