Media captionNHS Winter: Tell us your stories

Every winter the NHS has to cope with extra pressures - from bugs like norovirus or flu making us ill, to bad weather leading to accidents.

The BBC will be taking a close look at how staff and patients cope during the winter months.

We would like you to help us tell the story of A&E departments and the NHS with your own personal experiences.

Tell us if you or a relative or a friend has recently been to A&E. What was your visit like? Was it like you thought it would be? What are conditions like? How long did you have to wait for treatment? How well were you treated?

Also, if you are a member of NHS staff, how are you coping this winter? Do you have enough resources? What have your experiences been with patients?

Your views will form part of the BBC's project '#nhswinter'. You can also take part via our Facebook page.
