Accident and Emergencies
A&E treats life threatening or serious injuries and illnesses following an accident or medical emergency.
The treatment you receive will depend on your clinical need.
Examples of situations where going to A&E would be appropriate include:
- Suspected broken bones
- Severe blood loss
- Drug overdose
- Loss of consciousness
If you are unable to get the patient to A&E, either yourself or via public transport (for example by taxi), or suspect that medical attention is required as a matter of urgency (for example, someone has lost consciousness and remains unconscious), dial 999 for an ambulance.
Local A&Es are open 24 hours-a-day.
For minor injuries such as minor burns and scalds, bites, cuts, simple fractures, sprains, bruises and wound infections, visit one of the county’s Minor Injury Units.
