Medical Emergencies

In the event of a medical emergency, you should contact the Emergency Services, by phoning 999. This is the quickest and best way of obtaining emergency assistance when you are concerned about serious or life-threatening illnesses or accidents, e.g. acute breathing problems, chest pains, and serious injuries from road traffic accidents or assaults.

You may, if you wish, phone the surgery to ask advice before calling an ambulance, although by doing so you may be delaying the arrival of assistance.
