The Emergency Department should only be used for serious and life-threatening illness and injury.
You can help us provide the best possible care to the most unwell patients by using the Emergency Department only when you need it.
Choosing the right care for your illness or injury
If you are unwell and it is not an emergency, there is a wide range of NHS services available to provide you with appropriate treatment and care. Going directly to the correct health professional with the right skills is very important and helps to ensure that NHS services are used properly.
