Accident & Emergency (A&E)

A&E departments assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for emergencies, such as:

  • loss of consciousness, 
  • pain that is not relieved by simple analgesia,
  • acute confused state,
  • severe chest pain, or
  • breathing difficulties.

If you are unsure then please feel free to ring the practice for advice or 111.

Call 999 in an emergency where life may be threatened. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath, symptoms of a possible stroke or severe bleeding constitute an emergency.
