Emergency banner

The Emergency Department (often known as A&E) is for serious, life-threatening injuries and illnesses that need urgent medical attention - other conditions can be treated elsewhere and you can find our more from ourĀ urgent care guide.

Serious life-threatening injuries and illnesses means things like:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Severe chest pain or breathing difficulty
  • Serious burns
  • Strokes and persistent fits

Please think before you dial 999

The ambulance service is for emergencies and life-threatening situations only. If you are suffering an emergency such as a heart attack, severe loss of blood, difficulty breathing or if you have been involved in a serious accident dial 999 immediately.

Remember... if ambulance crews are called out to people who only have minor illnesses or injuries they cannot get to those people who really do need their help.
