Our emergency departments are always here for you and your family when you need urgent critical care.
If you need urgent medical attention but it's not a life-threatening situation, you could be seen and treated faster at a number of different services available across the region:
Call NHS 111 first before going to your local A&E department, unless it is a life-threatening emergency when you should call 999.
The service is free to use and available 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
If you have a minor injury such as a sprain, strain, broken bone or minor head injury, you can also go straight to your local Minor Injury Unit (MIU) or Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) in Yate, Hengrove or Clevedon.
Your local pharmacist can give advice and medication for ailments ranging from colds, flu and upset stomachs to urinary tract infections, threadworm, dandruff, insect bites and stings.
Self-care is perfect if your condition is something you will be able to treat at home, such as coughs, colds and common childhood illnesses.
