Think Pharmacy First
Don't wait for a doctors appointment, go straight to your pharmacy first!
Pharmacies offer a wide selection of services for minor ailments that give you more choice and easier access when you need it.
Pharmacies can give you advice and, if needed, medicines for common illnesses, so you do not have to make an appointment with your GP.
You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
