You can contact your GP for help with non-urgent illnesses, ongoing long-term health conditions or minor injuries. GPs provide a range of services by appointment including medical advice, examinations and prescriptions, and using a GP can save you time as they know your medical history.
Opening hours: Many are open longer hours including early morning, late evenings and Saturdays.
Location: Find a GP near you
Contact: Contact your GP directly. If you do not have a GP or your GP is closed call NHS 111.
In a life-threatening emergency go to the Emergency Department or call 999.
You can call 111 when you need medical help fast, but it’s not a 999 emergency.
