HOSPITAL bosses are pleading with Wiganers to stay away from A&E as the department is struggling to cope.

Wigan Infirmary chiefs say patients presenting can expect long delays and are urging people only to come if they are suffering a genuine emergency. Doctors are asking people who need advice to contact their GP, pharmacist or ring the NHS 111 number.
