We remain under significant pressure despite calling an end to a critical incident caused by high levels of demand for emergency care.
The hospital is still extremely busy and continuing to face ongoing challenges with discharging people who are ready to go home or into social care settings.
Acting Chief Executive, Dr Nikki Turner, said: “With the support of our teams, who are working tirelessly and the support of the people of the Island, we have been able to relieve some of the pressure that we were facing this time yesterday.
We are still seeing a very high demand for our services and would encourage people to visit NHS 111 online to find out the best places get help and support. For life threatening emergencies and injuries people should still call 999.”
