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.

Call 999 or go to A&E now if you or someone has any of these:

  • 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

  • heavy bleeding (spraying, pouring or enough to make a puddle)

  • severe injuries (after a serious accident or assault)

  • a seizure or fit (shaking, jerking, or unconscious & can’t be woken up)

  • sudden, rapid swelling (of the lips, mouth, throat or tongue)

When the Surgery is closed:

You should use the NHS 111 service if you need urgent medical help or advice for a physical issue that is not life-threatening. If you are experiencing a mental health crisis and need help call NHS 111 and select option 2 to speak to specially trained mental health staff who can discuss your mental health care needs.

You can also access NHS 111 online via www.111.nhs.uk (this service is for people aged 5 and over).

Long Term Conditions

Living with a long-term condition brings challenges and it’s important to have the confidence, support and information to manage your health. Self care can help you make the most of living with your condition, rather than avoiding or missing out on things because of it. Self care puts you in control.
