Choosing the right health service for you

It's important to access the right health service to ensure that your health needs are met. Use the information below to help you choose.

  • Make an appointment with your GP if you feel unwell and it's not an emergency
  • Ask your local pharmacist for advice about common minor illnesses such as diarrhoea, minor infections, headaches, sore throats, or for travel advice
  • Call 111 if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life threatening situation, if you're unsure about which NHS service you need, or if you can't wait until your GP surgery is open
  • Call 999 or visit A&E only for life-threatening illnesses and injuries
