Accident & Emergency (A&E) or 999 (Emergency services)

It is often very obvious when emergency care is needed for serious injury or illness. You should get medical attention by either taking the patient to the nearest Accident & Emergency (A&E) department or by phoning 999 for an emergency ambulance.

An emergency is a critical or life threatening situation such as:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Heavy blood loss
  • Suspected broken bones
  • Persistent chest pain for 15 minutes or more
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Overdose, ingestion or poisoning.

Remember to keep calm, do everything you can to help the person, but don't put yourself in danger and don't give the person anything to eat, drink or smoke.

Unless you need emergency medical attention avoid local A&E departments. Doctors and nurses there are equipped to deal with serious cases of injury and illness, not routine and minor ailments. Calling an ambulance won't necessarily mean you are seen any quicker at A&E, as the most serious cases are prioritised.
