When to go to A&E

An A&E Department (also known as Emergency Department or Casualty) deals with genuine life-threatening emergencies, such as:

Less severe injuries can be treated in Urgent Care Centres or Minor Injuries Units. A&E is not an alternative to a GP appointment.

If your GP is closed you can go to or call 111, which will direct you to the best local service.

Alternatively, you can visit an NHS Urgent Treatment or Walk-in Centre, which will also treat minor illnesses without an appointment.

How to find your nearest A&E

Not all Hospitals have an A&E Department. You can use the ‘Find Services’ search on the NHS website to see if there is one near you.
