Should I go to
If it’s not a 999 emergency, call
Wye Surgery or
dial 111 if we’re closed.
Accident and Emergency departments at hospitals are intended only for seriously ill people with life threatening injuries or conditions.
Please don’t go to A&E with minor problems that can easily be treated elsewhere - it diverts medical resources away from where they are most needed, causes delays and costs the NHS money.
If your condition is not serious you can normally get the treatment you need either at a local minor injuries unit or other centre, or by coming into Wye Surgery.
If you’re unsure what to do - call for advice
If we’re open - call us on 01233 884 585
If we’re closed - dial 111 and speak to the NHS 111 service.
A&E is not free.
Go straight to A&E if you are seriously ill, badly injured or have a life threatening condition, eg:
- Heavy bleeding
- Difficulty breathing
- Burns or scalds
- Chest pain
- Loss of consciousness
- Fits that don’t stop.
The nearest Accident & Emergency Department to Wye Surgery is William Harvey Hospital, Ashford.
