For symptoms such as Back ache, Ear pain, High temperature or Vomiting.
These are some of the things your GP can help you with. Your GP is your first port of call for ongoing illnesses or injuries.
Your GP provides a range of services by appointment and will be able to assess your immediate needs as well as refer you into a specialist service, such as outpatients, if necessary. They also know your medical history so are best placed to manage you – THINK FIRST, DON’T GO TO A&E.
Many surgeries open longer hours, however, if your surgery is closed, call the usual practice number and you will be given the number to call or be automatically diverted to NHS 111.
