If you or someone you care for becomes ill or injured out of normal GP opening hours it is important to choose the right service for your needs. Your local Hospital Accident & Emergency service is not always the quickest or best place for you to go.
Pharmacies can treat common illnesses and GP’s (Doctors) are on call 24 hours a day. Whether you need to know where your nearest pharmacy is, think you might need to see a GP or if you’re unsure and need any advice please call your local NHS health advice line on (01472) 256222.
If you or someone else is seriously ill or badly injured please call the emergency services on 999.
