Don’t forget that your local pharmacist is a great source of advice and treatment for minor injuries and illnesses.
There are also some great resources for self care on the NHS choices website.
However, if you do need to be seen urgently outside of our opening hours, and cannot wait until the next working day, you should dial 1-1-1, which will direct you to the most appropriate treatment options. Calls to NHS 111 are free from mobiles and landlines.
