I Need Help Now!

If you have hurt yourself, think you might, or are in urgent need of attention do not hesitate to seek help!

If you have hurt yourself, taken an overdose, or have thoughts of ending your life do not hesitate to go to A&E or call 999. You will be treated with the respect you deserve, kindness and empathy. A&E exists to treat you in emergencies such as this and will treat you without judgement and total confidence. If you have taken an overdose or ingested poisons, you should go even if you don’t feel unwell as the effects of an overdose can be delayed by hours or days, but can be fatal.
Sheffield’s adult A&E services are located at the Northern General Hospital, S5 7AU.
