Emergency Departments at hospitals are for life threatening and serious conditions, but sometimes when we're hurt or feel sick we're not sure where else to go for help. 

In the video below, Dr Sam talks about some of the other places you can get help, depending on your condition. 

In an emergency, call triple zero (000) or go to the nearest Emergency Department. 

HealthDirect (1800 022 222) is a 24-hour service manned by health professionals to provide advice on health concerns and where best to access help. 

We would like to acknowledge Central Coast Local Health District who produced and developed this animation.
