Other services

Minor Injuries Units (MIU) and mental health support:

Book an appointment via NHS 111 before visiting a unit or accessing local mental health services. 

Please see Minor Injuries Units and First Aid Units

Emergency Departments (A&E) and 99 emergency ambulance

These services provide vital care for life-threatening emergencies, such as:

  • loss of consciousness
  • suspected heart attack or stroke
  • severe breathing difficulties
  • severe bleeding that cannot be stopped

In these cases call 999 immediately.

Dental services

How can I get an NHS dentist in an emergency or out of hours?

If you think you need urgent dental treatment:

  • call your usual dentist in the first instance who will advise on emergency treatment
  • use the NHS 111 online service if you cannot contact your dentist or you do not have one.

Non-COVID conditions

Seek urgent care and treatment at all times especially for symptoms of stroke and heart attack.

Delays in getting treatment pose a long-term risk to health - and we encourage people to use other important services such as cancer screening and care, maternity appointments, immunisations and mental health support.

These services can all be accessed safely - Help Us Help You.

Remember, wearing a face mask or covering is compulsory at many indoor settings such as shops and public transport.
