Accidents and Emergencies



Chest Pain  -  Call 999 and ask for an ambulance

Any condition which you feel is Life Threatening call 999




If you or a member of your family have had an accident during surgery hours WHICH YOU FEEL IS NOT LIFE THREATENING , please contact the surgery.  The doctors and nurses here are able to deal with most minor injuries and it may save you a long wait at the Hospital if you are assessed here first.  If it is decided that an xray is needed the doctor can refer you directly to xray department without the need for you to have a long wait in A & E at the Hospital.
