Children’s Emergency Services at County Hospital Temporarily Suspended on Safety Grounds


Accident and Emergency services at County Hospital in Stafford have been suspended for children and people under the age of 18. The interim measure, which will come into effect from 10am from Thursday 25 August 2016, has been instigated by the Trust Board at University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust because senior clinicians have advised that the service is not currently clinically safe.  Adult Accident and Emergency is not affected and remains open 14 hours a day between 8am and 10pm.
