Accident and Emergency


When it comes to your health or the health of someone in your family, it is often very obvious if the person is seriously ill and needs immediate emergency care. An emergency is a critical or life-threatening situation.

A critical situation can include someone suffering:

  • unconsciousness
  • a suspected stroke
  • heavy blood loss
  • a deep wound such as a stab wound
  • a suspected heart attack
  • difficulty in breathing
  • severe burns

Accident and Emergency departments are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
