If you have to go to A&E, which hospital do you go to ?
If you have the choice of a hospital then which one do you go to ?
Well you may be aware of the plans of Sandwell and City hospitals to merge a lot services onto one site in Grove Lane Smethwick. the implications from this on not clear yet on the two older hospitals but I have personally used both over the years. Usually Sandwell for A&E and the City for Day surgery for the family.
If I had to think of going to A&E Sandwell is always first choice and 6 months ago I had to go on a red light to A&E and which one was it, Sandwell of course. For me personally the other choices are far more difficult to get to and if you can not drive the 451 makes it so much easier to go home.
This is one that residents of Pheasey should be aware of for the future as I think it is inevitable that A&E will be removed from Sandwell and Grove Lane is more awkward to get to.
Be interesting to fond out how much we use Sandwell, Good Hope or the Manor as the nearest three.
