The Trust says both hospitals’ Emergency Departments are currently ‘extremely busy’ warning potential patients of long waiting times.
In a statement a spokesperson said: “Both our Emergency Departments are extremely busy with large numbers of patients awaiting admission.
“Please only attend if your condition is urgent or life threatening. If your condition is less urgent, you may face a long wait.
“We are appealing for the full co-operation of patients, families and carers in supporting discharge and helping us to free up much needed beds.”
