If an ambulance is not required but a general practitioner is needed, call the patient’s own local GP if appropriate, otherwise, call Jericho Health Centre on 01865-311234 and ask to speak to Dr Laurence Leaver or one of his colleagues; explain that you are dealing with an emergency on University premises.
If the patient can be moved either:
(a)decide whether the patient should be taken to an appropriate accident service (see addresses below), or
(b)contact the patient’s general practitioner and ask for assistance.
If in doubt call an ambulance (999 or 112).
