THE Southern Trust has asked people to seek alternatives to using the Emergency Department at Daisy Hill Hospital as it is under pressure.

The Trust said in a post on social media that both the Newry hospital and Craigavon Area Hospital have a high volume of users which is expected to continue for some time.

They said: "Both of our Emergency Departments (Craigavon & Daisy Hill Hospitals) are extremely busy today and are expected to remain very busy this week.

"If it is not an emergency please don't come to ED. Alternatives include GPs, your local pharmacist and Minor Injuries Unit in Dungannon."
