If you have symptoms of Covid-19, which worsen during self-isolation at home and you need advice, visit the NHS 111 website. If you cannot get online, call NHS 111. Please do not visit a GP surgery or hospital.

Help us, help you get the treatment you need

Even with the current Covid-19 pandemic, people will continue to suffer from other illnesses and will need the help of the NHS.

If you’re worried about your health or have symptoms that need to be checked out urgently –the message is clear – don’t delay, act today. This will be better for your health in the long run.

NHS services are still here for you:

  • Call your GP surgery or if it’s a serious, life threatening emergency, call 999.
  • If you need support when your GP surgery is closed, use the NHS 111 online service or call 111.

Worried about Cancer? – get it checked out

If you are worried about unexplained changes to your body, such as the sudden appearance of a lump, blood in your urine or a change to your usual bowel habits, you must contact your GP surgery, either online or by phone.

For everything else:

  • The symptom checkers on the nhs.uk website or NHS app can help you to understand what you can do for yourself or if you need to seek additional help
  • Ask your local pharmacist – they are experts on medicines and can advise on whether you need another NHS service
  • If you have an illness that won’t go away or need urgent medical advice, contact your GP surgery or NHS 111 out-of-hours. If you don’t have a GP, you can find how to access one here.
