Emergency Department

Your local hospital’s emergency department, also known as A&E, is open 24 hours a day and is for genuine life-threatening emergencies only.

Please keep 999 and emergency departments free for genuine-life threatening emergencies. For non-life-threatening issues, contact your pharmacy, GP surgery or NHS111 (links to each of the pages).

You should dial 999 or to go to the emergency department when you experience:

  • Signs of a heart attack
  • Signs of a stroke
  • Sudden confusion
  • Severe difficulty breathing
  • Choking
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Severe injuries
  • Seizure
  • Sudden, rapid swelling

When you arrive at your local emergency department, a doctor or nurse will assess your condition and decide on what further action or treatment you need, this is called triage. If you attend the emergency department and your condition is less serious, your wait time may be considerably longer.
