What to do in an emergency

In the event of an emergency, you should contact campus security by calling 0800 526966.

In an emergency where paramedic or ambulance is called on 999, you must contact Security on 0800 526966 immediately after contacting the emergency services to inform them that a paramedic/ambulance is the way, so Security can effectively direct them to your location. This will save crucial time.

When the Fire Brigade or Police are required, Security must contact them.

Remember, ambulances are for emergencies e.g. chest pain, cardiac arrest, allergic reactions, unconscious, stroke or severe bleeding. If it is not an emergency you can get advice by:

  • Calling the Warden Team who have contact details of trained First Aiders
  • Telephoning the NHS 111 service or get help at 111 online
  • Contacting your GP or pharmacist
  • Going to an Urgent Care Centre
