IN CASE OF EMERGENCY:
When in the lab, the first person you should contact is one of the members of the Lab Team, many of them are also first aiders. We will point you towards appropriate help. If anyone is not available, then:
• Dial 020 7911 5000 ext 5555 from your mobile
• Dial 5555 from a Campus landline phone
• Visit the reception desk
The University has trained first aiders at each campus and they are your first point of contact in an emergency. Dial 020 7911 5000 ext 5555, or 5555 from a campus landline and someone will be sent to you. You can also page a nurse on this number. Note that our first aiders are volunteers and have their own jobs to do too, so please only request them if something happens to you while at the University.
If you need the Emergency Service(s) urgently, please either contact Reception or call 999 and then contact Reception afterwards and inform them of the situation.
WHEN OFF CAMPUS
If the accident or emergency occurs outside the University then you should go to the Accident and Emergency Department or Minor Injuries Unit at your nearest hospital.
Call 999 for an ambulance for emergencies such as loss of consciousness, severe chest pain, serious accidents or serious loss of blood.
Call NHS 111 if you need urgent medical help or advice but it's not a life threatening situation. This is a new service from the NHS and you can find out more on the NHS 111 page.
Find out where your nearest emergency medical facilities are and keep their details handy.
