There are lots of things you can do to manage your own health, and sometimes it’s entirely appropriate to go to your pharmacist for over-the-counter medication and for advice. If you’ve had a major accident or it’s an emergency (chest pain, shortness of breath, profuse bleeding) then you need to call 999 and go to A&E.
Most of the time, however, your GP is the right place to go. All of our practices will see children under 5 within a few hours (please phone first). We’re also putting on more same day appointments through the Evening and Weekend
You can also phone NHS 111 for an assessment. If it’s appropriate, you can be booked into your GP practice or an appointment in the hub, so please ring your GP practice to get the right advice and to be booked.
