Always call 999 if someone is seriously ill or injured, and their life is at risk. Examples of the type of emergency which require an emergency ambulance are:
- Chest pain
- difficulty in breathing
- severe loss of blood
- severe burns or scalds
- fitting or concussion
- severe allergic reactions.
If you or the person you are calling about has a suspected broken bone, burn or deep wound but you can arrange your own transport, then please go straight to the A&E department at Warwick Hospital.
Urgent medical advice
During our normal opening hours, please ring reception on 01926 421214.Tell the receptionist you have an urgent health problem. In order that you can be given the most appropriate help, the receptionist will need to ask you some basic questions such as your contact details and a brief description of what your problem is. They may then put you through to a Doctor or Nurse, or arrange a call back as soon as someone sutiable is available.
If you have a life threatening emergency, the receptionist will tell you phone for an ambulance.
Outside of our normal opening hour, if you have a problem that can't wait until we reopen then call 111. This is a national, free service which will direct you to whichever service you need and replaces the old Out of Hours Service number. You may be given advice or asked to attend the out-of-hours clinic, A&E, or receive a home visit.
