IS ACCIDENT &EMERGENGY SERVICES (A&E) for me?

NHS outer north east London has launched a campaign to stop people going to A&E unless it is a serious medical emergency. They are using clear messages to stress that A&E is only for serious medical emergencies and other NHS services are available everywhere.

Please click here to be directed to the campaign website.

What to do in an Emergency

Whatever the day or time, if you or someone else experiences severe chest pain, loss of blood or suspected broken bones, or any other life threatening illness go to your nearest accident and emergency department or call 999.

Accident and emergency departments are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and can assess serious injuries and provide emergency treatment.

NHS 111 Service

111 is the free, easy to remember number to call when you need help or advice urgently when it’s not a life-threatening situation.

When should you use NHS 111?

People should use the NHS 111 service if they need help or advice urgently when it’s not a life-threatening situation.

You should call 111 if:

  • it’s not a 999 emergency

  • you don’t think it can wait for an appointment with your GP

  • you don’t know who to call for medical help

For less urgent health needs, you should still contact your GP or dentist in the usual way. For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, patients should dial 999.
