King’s College Hospital Emergency Department

A&E departments assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies, such as:

  • loss of consciousness
  • acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
  • persistent, severe chest pain
  • breathing difficulties
  • severe bleeding that cannot be stopped

If an ambulance is needed, call 999, the emergency phone number in the UK.

Emergency mental health services

In an emergency, if your GP surgery is closed, go to a hospital’s A&E desk and ask to see the psychiatrist on duty.

We only treat conditions that need urgent assessment and treatment.
We are open 24 hours a day.
