Its in the title accident or emergency. People see many minor things as an emergency which can wait. Dental problems which have gone on for weeks but have not seeked dental advice. Patients that don't want to go to there GP or can't get an appointment. Minor injuries that don't have a dr or X-ray after a certain time. GP's that don't go out to see a patient so call an ambulance instead
