A & E / 999
In an emergency, you might need to call 999 or go to your nearest A&E department. Remember there is always extreme pressure on these services, so think first about whether your illness could be better treated by using one of the options above. Unnecessary visits to A & E simply make waiting times longer and risk taking staff away from people who are very sick.
PLEASE DO NOT GO TO A & E OR DIAL 999 UNLESS IT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
These services are for patients who have suffered a serious injury or illness requiring immediate treatment.
