Symptoms that won’t go away
When you’re ill, it can feel like you’ve been that way for ages, and that there’s no sign of you getting better. That might be a bit dramatic, but we’ll hold fire on our tiny violin-playing because in some cases, it’s true. If you’re ill or have an injury that just won’t shift, make an appointment to see your doctor.
You can make an appointment over the phone, or in some GP practices, online. Your GP can help you get the right treatment, prescribe you the right medicine, or refer you to the right service.
Need help, but can’t get to your surgery during opening hours? We know the feeling. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. You can book an out of hours appointment either through your practice or through NHS 111, which is available 24/7, at a time and place that works for you. Your appointment might be with a local GP, a nurse, or an advanced nurse practitioner – whoever’s most suited to your needs, meaning you can get the care you need when you need it.
