Treat yourself at home

Visit your pharmacy to stock up on health care essentials (paracetamol, plasters etc.) - your pharmacist will be able to make recommendations. Conditions like colds, flu or an upset stomach are often treatable at home - make sure you rest and drink plenty of fluids. If you have a small cut or graze, clean the wound under clean running water and put a plaster on to help stop infection.

Visit your doctor

If you are ill or can't treat yourself at home, please make an appointment with your GP. On the day appointments are available for issues that need to be dealt with that day. To avoid waiting, check it's not something your pharmacist can help with first.

Register with a dentist

To register with a dentist, find a practice at www.nhs.uk and given them a call to book an appointment. You may need to join a waiting list to see a dentist. If you need emergency dental care, even outside of opening hours, call your dentist – they’ll have emergency contact details on their answer phone.
