Keep Emergency Departments, (A&E) for Emergencies:
Your GP knows you best!!!
Emergency Departments, (or A/E), all over Northern Ireland are very busy and are under real pressure to meet target figures while trying to deliver a high quality service to the general public.
Your GP knows your medical history and you better than an A&E doctor!!
To help ease the workload of the department only attend the Emergency Department if really necessary.
Call 999 if you have i.e:
shortness of breath or not breathing
stroke like symptoms
by not using this service properly you may put other peoples lives at risk and someday you may need an urgent ambulance.
