A good place to start is Home – NHSTogether We Can

Advice on when to call 999 can be found in the NHS website here

If you have to wait, there is important and helpful advice about what you can do to help someone in an emergency on the NHS website here

For minor injuries phone NHS 111 or use the NHS website

The NHS and the Red Cross websites have helpful information covering* first aid* advice for a wide range of conditions and injuries. See https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/first-aid/ and https://www.redcross.org.uk/first-aid/learn-first-aid/

Prepare and protect isolated & vulnerable people on and around ambulance strike days

If you, or people you care for, are vulnerable, make sure you are contactable and perhaps schedule a phone or video call. Check in daily if you can and share this information with them too.

Emergency Ambulance Transport

If you face significant delays in ambulance transport and are faced with a critically unwell or injured person and simply do not know what to do, contact or call into your local GP Practice and ask to speak to the on-call Doctor, making it clear you need emergency advice.
