If we are closed and you require medical assistance, please call 111 (see below) they will be able to provide medical advice and if appropriate will provide an appointment at a local Urgent Treatment Centre.

A&E Department, William Harvey Hospital

This department will assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies, such as:

  • loss of consciousness
  • acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
  • persistent, severe chest pain
  • breathing difficulties
  • signs of a stroke burns and scalds
  • severe bleeding that cannot be stopped

Go to A&E if you are seriously ill, badly injured or have a life threatening condition.

Using A&E when you don’t need to could delay treatment for someone more seriously ill than yourself.


Your local Pharmacy (not our dispensary) is often able to help with common, minor health problems, providing advice and the best medicine to treat them.

They will advise you if you need to be seen by a doctor. Most are open every day and late into the evening.

Medical Emergencies

If you, or someone you are with, has a serious or life-threatening problem, telephone 999 and ask to speak to the ambulance service. This would be appropriate in cases of unexplained collapse, severe breathing difficulties, chest pain or a severe injury.
