You should visit A&E or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies or other serious conditions. These include:
- loss of consciousness
- acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
- persistent, severe chest pain
- breathing difficulties
- severe bleeding that cannot be stopped.
If you need an ambulance call 999, the emergency phone number in the UK.
Major A&E departments offer access 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, although not all hospitals have an A&E department.
