Derriford Hospital Emergency Department is open 24hours a day, 7 days a week for urgent medical problems: accidents or illnesses, no appointment necessary. They stress that it should not be used instead of your GP, as it can be very busy, and many problems are better treated by your own doctor.
Try NHS Direct (0845 46 47) if you need advice.

If you need help to get someone to hospital in an emergency, telephone 999 and ask for an ambulance.
Follow any instructions the ambulance service call handler may give you.
