Wye Surgery - Self Help Tips

If you are hurt and need treatment, ask for an appointment at our minor injury clinic, or find one of the other minor injury services in the Ashford area (it could be run at another GP Practice, clinic or hospital).

If the injury is more serious or life-threatening dial 999 and ask for an ambulance (or make your own way to A&E if you can).

Or if it’s not urgent, message your GP for advice using the online service askmyGP.


Stroke, heart attack and CPR Stroke, heart attack and CPR

If you witness a stroke, heart attack or cardiac arrest, don’t waste time - call 999. The worst thing you can do is nothing. Note the time when symptoms first appear.

If the patient stops breathing and doesn't respond to touch or talk they will need CPR immediately:
