NHS Services Explained
Call NHS 111 if you need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation. You can also call NHS 111 if you're not sure which NHS service you need. It is available 24/7.
Call 999 if someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.
Visit a walk-in centre, minor injuries unit or urgent care centre if you have a minor illness or injury (cuts, sprains or rashes) and it can't wait until your GP surgery is open.
Ask your local pharmacist for advice – your pharmacist can give you advice for many common minor illnesses, such as diarrhoea, minor infections, headache, travel advice or sore throats.
Make an appointment with your GP if you are feeling unwell and it is not an emergency.
