If you are off campus and you are involved in a serious accident or incident, contact the local emergency services first and then let the University know as soon as possible thereafter so that any appropriate assistance can be provided.
A serious incident would involve death or serious injury or risk from an accident, natural disaster, political disturbance or similar event.
In these circumstances, use the following number to make a PPA (Please Provide Assistance) call to the University reversing the charge if necessary.
Call: +44 (0)141-357 6868 (24 hours)
Say you are making a “PPA call” and be ready to give:
- A brief description of what has happened
- What help is required
- Names and other details of those involved
- A contact phone number (and alert someone there to expect calls)
- Agree a time to phone again
University assistance can include help with repatriation, enlisting support from insurers and local agencies, notifying relatives, fielding media inquiries.
If you’re ill when your doctor’s surgery is closed and you feel it can’t wait until it re-opens, call NHS 24.
