Medical Emergencies

If you, or your family are having a medical emergency, which is life threatening, you should telephone 999. If it is not life threatening, the number to telephone is 111.

For smaller health problems, there is a “Walk-In” centre in Kings Street, Wakefield – Details here.

There is currently great demand on the NHS, note that it is not always possible to get a “same day” appointment with your Doctor, (if you have been registered). Most health centres need to receive requests for same-day appointments before 8:00am
