999 and the Emergency Department at St. Mary’s Hospital are for serious, life-threatening injuries and illnesses including loss of consciousness, heavy bleeding, severe chest pain or breathing difficulty, serious burns, strokes and persistent fits. Misuse of ambulance services can cost lives - think before you dial 999.
