We try to keep our GP appointments for patients with more serious health problems.
If you have a cough, cold, headache or other minor ailment try treating yourself at home first.
Please remember that self-care for common conditions can help free up our GPs’ time, making it easier to get an appointment when you have a more serious condition.
Your pharmacist can help too
Pharmacists are highly trained health professionals and can give you confidential health advice for a range of common illnesses and complaints.
Don’t wait for a GP appointment for coughs, colds, aches and pains. Just call your local pharmacy a call or drop in – there’s no need to make an appointment.
Your pharmacists can also help you decide if you need to see a doctor or nurse. Choose your pharmacy for treatments for these common ailments.
Well-being and local services
Well-being doesn’t just mean your health. It includes where you live, how safe and secure you feel, getting out and about, and keeping in touch with family and friends.
