The hospital's press office has been using the social networking site to inform patients of the services on offer at the Trust.
Patients with non-urgent appointments are being asked not to attempt to attend but to try to cancel the appointment themselves. An Out of Hours GP service operated last night as usual but home visits may be limited by the extreme weather.
Salford Community Health has also deployed a 4x4 to carry out essential home visits and one Salford GP slept overnight at a health centre to ensure expert medical advice could be delivered today.
