Calling an ambulance on campus

Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) has recommended the University changes the way we call for an ambulance in an emergency on campus.

Need First Aid Poster - Ambulance Calls

From 27th January the process for calling an ambulance in an emergency on campus is changing.  

  • Call for a First Aider. Each school/service has its own way of calling first aiders – look out for information and posters on how to do this where you work. If in doubt, shout for one!
  • If an ambulance is needed, call 999* first so the YAS Emergency Call Handler can help you and the casualty immediately (*dial 9 for an outside line first if you’re calling from an internal University landline).
  • Then tell Security you’ve called for an ambulance by calling 0113 34 32222 (x32222), so colleagues there can help support and direct the ambulance to you through our complex campus.
