Emergency care

Many patients who attend A&E can be seen by alternative NHS services such as GP, pharmacy and dentists. If you require urgent but not emergency advice use NHS 111 by telephone or online.

A&E (Accident and Emergency)

A&E (accident and emergency) departments assess and treat patients with life threatening serious injuries or illnesses. You should visit A&E or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies, such as:

  • loss of consciousness
  • acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
  • persistent, severe chest pain
  • breathing difficulties
  • severe bleeding that cannot be stopped

If you need an ambulance call 999.

Major A&E departments offer access 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
