Where do I go for medical help?

Always call 999 if someone is seriously ill or injured, and if their life is at risk.

If it is a non life-threatening emergency or incident you can either:

  • Go to the Walk-in Centre located within the Millennium Centre (WA10 1HJ)
  • Go to the Accident and Emergency department at Whiston Hospital (L35 5DR)

For general illnesses (e.g. flu) you could also:

  • Go to your GP
  • Visit the NHS Choices website to check your symptoms online
  • Call NHS Direct (0845 4647)
  • Go to your local Pharmacist; they are qualified to give advice from sprains to stomach upsets, and usually no appointment is necessary
