How to manage and avoid hospitalisation after a hospital incident

It is common for hospital staff to become ill and to have to be admitted to a local hospital to be treated.

These incidents are a reminder of the dangers of the system and of the importance of keeping up to date on current information and ensuring you are aware of current conditions.

If you are concerned about hospital related illness, you should always check the NHS Emergency Contact List and call the nearest GP.

They will be able to assess the situation, advise on appropriate hospital treatment and assist with any required medical or social care.

The Emergency Contact Register can be accessed at: http://www.nhs.uk/nhs/electronic/contact-list/index.html.

It contains: A complete list of emergency contact numbers (e.g. 999, 111, 116, 116.123, 117, 117.123)
