This is a statement from the Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust
Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust is experiencing extreme staff shortages at both Stoke Mandeville and Wycombe hospitals due to the adverse weather conditions.
If there are any qualified nurses who are not on shift over the weekend and can travel safely to either hospital, we would really appreciate their help. This includes nurses from neighbouring hospitals.
If you are able to help, please call 01296 315000 and ask for the bed management team at either Stoke Mandeville or Wycombe, whichever you can get to.
We would also like to remind people to consider the full range of healthcare services available to them before coming to our hospitals' emergency departments, such as NHS Direct and local pharmacies.
