Generally, the NHS would prefer if visits to A&E were for life threatening emergencies, such as:
- Loss of consciousness
- Acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
- Persistent, severe chest pain
- Breathing difficulties
- Severe bleeding that cannot be stopped
This is so that patients who are seriously ill or injured can be treated as quickly as possible.

There are other options to visit for more minor injuries and illnesses, including:
- NHS walk-in centers (no appointment needed)
- Minor Injury Units
- GP out-of-hours service
