we are selfcare aware. NHS

GPs and their wider team need time to give patients the best care they possibly can. You can help free up time for those who really need expert advice by considering three alternatives before booking an appointment:

  1. Self-care

    For minor ailments you could safely treat your symptoms at home, for example through rest or with appropriate over the counter medicines.

  2. Use trusted NHS online services

    Online NHS services offer sensible advice on a range of health issues and are a useful place to turn for initial guidance. Visit www.nhs.uk

  3. Seek advice from a pharmacist

    Pharmacists are highly skilled healthcare professionals who can offer valuable advice.
