A&E departments assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. You should visit A&E or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies, such as:
If you need an ambulance call 999, the emergency phone number in the UK.
You can also dial 112, which is the ambulance number throughout the European Union.
Major A&E departments offer access 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, although not all hospitals have an A&E department.
Emergency children's care
Ealing Hospital has a 24/7 Urgent Care Centre. It doesn't have a children's A&E.
In a life-threatening emergency call 999.
If it is not a life-threatening situation but it is urgent, you should go to Ealing Hospital’s Urgent Care Centre. Alternatively, you can visit or call your GP, or call NHS 111.
