The A&E department at Scunthorpe General Hospital deals with genuine life-threatening emergencies, such as:
- loss of consciousness
- acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
- chest pain
- breathing difficulties
- severe bleeding that cannot be stopped
- severe allergic reactions
- severe burns or scalds
- major trauma, such as a road traffic accident
A&E is not an alternative to a GP appointment. If your GP practice is closed, you can call 111, which will direct you to the best local service.
If yours is a real emergency, always dial 999.
