Generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies, such as:

  • loss of consciousness
  • confusion and  fits that are not stopping
  • persistent, severe chest pain
  • breathing difficulties
  • severe bleeding that cannot be stopped

The purpose of this service is to ensure that patients who are either very ill or who have had an accident/injury, are treated quickly. You will be assessed by a nurse on arrival who will then ensure you are seen appropriately based on how serious your illness/injury is. 

Children who attend the A&E department may be seen by a consultant who specialises in children's care, and some children may be referred to the Paediatric Assessment Unit, a ward which is more suitable for children and young people.
