EMERGENCY - 999
It may be appropriate in certain
cases to call the emergency service (ambulance etc) on 999 instead of, or as well as, the doctor.
Such as cases would include accidents with possible fractures, head injury with unconsciousness ('knocked
out'), sudden collapse with chest pain or paralysis.
Please, however, always be mindful that
the emergency services have many demands on their resources and always use 999 responsibly.
Telephone advice is available from
trained nurses. Telephone 0845 4647, 24 hours a day or visit www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk
