Emergency Care

If you have an emergency or need urgent medical attention when the surgery is closed please call 111

If you have a serious injury or illness, generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies

A&E departments assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Before you go there, ask yourself, is it a real emergency?
