Medical Emergencies

In a life threatening medical emergency you should immediately call 999 and for less urgent medical support 111.
There is a very small, single ambulance station located five minutes away in Grange over Sands, otherwise ambulances will be directed from further away.

Cartmel has a number of emergency defibrillators (cofunded by Cartmel Village Society except racecourse) and trained local “first responders” will provide emergency coronary support if necessary after dialling 999.
