Finding medical help

Unconscious - Emergency


If you are in any sort of medical emergency DIAL 999 (You can also dial 112).

At times of emergency it’s not always easy to think clearly but try to stay calm and not be scared.

You will have to say you want an ambulance.

The operator will want to know:

  • your name

  • the address where the emergency is.

You may be asked some other questions like:

What is the problem?

Who is hurt?

Are they breathing?

The operator may give you advice while you wait for the ambulance to arrive.

Tell them if you have a learning disability so that they give their instructions in a way you understand.
