Emergency Department

Emergency Departments and the 999 ambulance service should only be used in a critical or life-threatening situation when treatment cannot wait until the next day. Dialing 999 and stating an emergency situation will result in a response vehicle being sent to your location.

Emergency situations include:
Stroke, overdose, choking, blacking out, open wound, blood loss, loss of consciousness, acute confused state and fits that are not stopping, anaphylaxis or severe allergic reactions, breathing difficulties, persistent severe chest pain.


People who go to A&E when they do not need to slow down a service that, for some, can make the difference between life and death.

Your nearest Emergency department is at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn and it is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

For illnesses that are not life-threatening you should first contact your GP Surgery.  Outside of normal surgery hours call NHS 111.
