Self-Help Information

To get the most out of the services provided by The Medical Centre & the NHS it is important that you use them appropriately.

For many minor ailments such as colds, coughs and sore throats you can get advice and over-the counter treatment at your local pharmacy. You can be seen at your local pharmacy today without an appointment!

The Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department – Addenbrooke’s Hospital

On any one day in the NHS, A&E departments will treat more than 40,000 patients!

Therefore it is important that people use them properly. You should think carefully whether or not your condition or illness is a real emergency, as you may prevent others with life-threatening conditions from getting immediate care.

A&E is not an alternative to your doctor. It is not appropriate to go to A&E just because your doctor cannot see you immediately. Calling 999 for an ambulance will not get you to the top of the A&E queue; all patients are seen on the basis of medical need, not how they arrive at hospital.

A&E doctors are not more experienced than your doctor. Your doctor is an expert in dealing with medical problems and A&E doctors are specialists in accidents and emergencies.

When is it an EMERGENCY ?


  • Suspected heart attack
  • Unconsciousness
  • Heavy blood loss
  • Suspected broken bones
  • Deep wounds such as stab wounds
  • Severe breathing difficulties
  • Head injuries

It is usually very obvious if the person is seriously ill and needs emergency care.

You should seek medical attention by either taking the person to A&E or by telephoning 999 for an emergency ambulance.
