If you need emergency medical care, immediately call 10177 or 082 911 (Netcare Private Emergency number) or 084 124 (ER24 ambulance number) for assistance. If you or someone you know is having a mental health emergency, immediately call Lifeline South Africa on 0861 322 322 or Akeso Psychiatric Response Unit on 0861 435 787. Both are available 24 hours a day.
