How did the use of ED change during the first wave of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in the UK? An observational study

Conclusions The study suggests that the decision to use the ED has a discretionary component. This could potentially contribute to unnecessary visits, and raises concerns that some patients who should present at the ED do not go. More effective communication about who should visit EDs during a pandemic, and the safety of doing so, is needed.
