Life-threatening emergencies

Call 999 in a medical emergency– when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.

Medical emergencies can include:

Major trauma is often the result of a serious road traffic accident, a stabbing, a shooting, a fall from height, or a serious head injury.

Non-life-threatening emergencies

If it is not a life-threatening emergency and you or the person you are with does not need immediate medical attention, please consider other options before dialling 999:

Choose the best service for your needs, as this will ensure the ambulance service is able to respond to the people who need help the most.
