If you have to visit a hospital because you have been injured in a road accident in Plymouth or in another part of Britain, or for any other accident, if this was not your own fault, you should contact Accident Advice Helpline to help you to make an injury claim.
In UK hospitals Accident & Emergency (A&E) departments deal with over 21 million cases a year. Not every hospital has an A&E department, but the ones that do offer 24-hour access, 365 days a year. One of their biggest problems is the people that visit with minor injuries. They keep the system busy so this then delays the treatment of more seriously ill or injured patients.
In general, the NHS would like it if visits to A&E were for life threatening emergencies,for instance:
- Persistent, severe chest pain
- Breathing difficulties
- Severe bleeding that cannot be stopped
- Loss of consciousness
- Acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
This is so that patients who are seriously ill or injured can be treated as quickly as possible – for some it could mean the difference between life and death.
