Alternatives to a GP Appointment
It is sometimes difficult, especially in busy periods to get an appointment with a GP. In some cases, especially when it is a minor ailment, alternatives may be quicker and more appropriate. Often with self-limiting illness like the common cold, self-treatment or a visit to a pharmacy may be quicker.

If you are unsure about how urgently you should see a doctor you can ring NHS 111 by simply dialling 111 ANYTIME 365 days a year.

If the surgery is closed they can also arrange  you to be seen by a doctor or other health professional in a local assessment centre, at home or if appropriate at the hopsital.

Minor injuries may need to be seen at the hopsital accident and emergency department but local minor injury units in your locality may be open and can deal with certain small injuries.
