Life or Death

Emergency Ambulance Services

Use of civilian emergency ambulance services is to be made in all cases such as:

a. Road Traffic Accidents. Where injury has occurred to a person or persons, even if such an accident has taken place within a garrison or station area.

b. Urgent Medical Conditions. When medical aid and resuscitation is indicated. To obtain emergency civilian medical aid, telephone 999, giving as much information as possible. This should include in the case of road traffic accidents, the number of people injured, the site of the accident and, if possible, some indication of the severity of the injuries.

Evening Surgeries

On Thursday an evening clinic is held in the GP, principally aimed at helping working wives. Hours are 1700-1820 hrs and bookings can be made in the normal manner.

Dental Advice for Families

In the United Kingdom, Service dependants have to make their own arrangements for dental care. They are entitled to the same benefits under the National Health Service (NHS) as the general population, and need to find a dental surgeon in general practice who participates in the NHS and register for treatment. Alternatively, they may wish to register with a dental surgeon in private practice.

You are strongly urged to register with a dental practitioner during your stay. Once accepted you will be entitled to continuing care, and to receive treatment when you need it. The dentist will discuss any needs with you and, if you have to pay NHS charges, tell you how much each item is likely to cost. You will also, in an emergency, be able to get telephone advice from a dentist outside surgery hours, and treatment will be available if you need it.Irrespective of your place of residence, you may ask any one of these dentists if he/she will accept you and your children as patients.
