Experiencing a medical emergency

If you're experiencing a medical emergency abroad and need medical help, you will first need to contact your private health/private medical insurance (PMI) provider (if applicable) and follow their emergency medical procedures and their claims procedures. Where your PMI provider cannot provide assistance, contact our 24/7 Emergency Assistance team who can help direct you to or help you obtain medical help, and if medically necessary they can work with local authorities to repatriate you home, subject to the terms and conditions of your policy.

Also, please provide us with details of your PMI provider to help us co-ordinate your care.
