What is an emergency?
General Practice is not an emergency service but we can manage urgent problems if we are open.
An emergency is a medical condition or symptom which requires immediate care as it is life-threatening or could result in serious injury/irreversible harm.

signs of a heart attack (chest pain, pressure, heaviness, tightness or squeezing across the chest)
signs of a stroke (face dropping on one side, cannot hold both arms up, difficulty speaking)
sudden confusion or delirium (unsure of own name or age)
suicide attempt (by taking something or self-harming)
severe difficulty breathing (not being able to get words out, choking or gasping)
a serious accident, or severe injuries burns or scalds
