Non-urgent patients asked to keep emergency department free

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Non-urgent patients are asked not to show up at Hamilton's emergency department unless they have a health emergency.

Waikato Hospital is so full that some non-urgent surgery is being postponed. People who are unwell but don't need to go to ED can visit their GP, local urgent care centre, or call Healthline 0800 611 116.

Those who need immediate or urgent help should dial 111, or go straight to the Waikato Hospital Emergency Department.

White Ribbon encourages everyone to challenge the unspoken rules, so we can let boys and young men enjoy their individuality and define themselves as men who have respectful relationships with themselves and their partners – creating happier, healthier communities for us all.
