Not Sure Where To Go?

Help Us Help You: make the right choice. Self-Care: stock up your medicine cabinet so you can treat coughs, colds and minor issues at home. Pharmacy: pharmacists can offer treatment and advice for minor illnesses, as well as flu jabs. Your GP Surgery: your first contact for ongoing health concerns during normal surgery hours, your GP surgery can offer examinations, advice, prescriptions, some vaccinations and referrals. NHS 111: you should call 111 or go online to when you can't wait to see your doctor, or you need help but don't know where to go - available 24/7, 365 days a year. Urgent Treatment Centre/Minor Injuries Unit: if you need urgent care but it's not an emergency, visit a UTC or MIU for things like sprains, burns and minor fractures. Emergency departments or 999: only dial 999 or visit A&E if it is a serious or life-threatening emergency such as chest pain, severe bleeding or breathing difficulties
