Medical care for coronavirus symptoms
If you're unwell with coronavirus symptoms find information on the NHS website.
Call 111 if you still need medical advice. Do not go to a pharmacy or medical centre. This number is free to call, but there are likely to be long waiting times to speak to someone.
If you have a genuine medical emergency you should call 999.
Medical care for all other conditions
Contact your GP during their normal opening times. Contact 111 out of hours.
You can also go to a pharmacy for advice as long as you do not have coronavirus symptoms.
Do not go to your GP surgery without first contacting them on the telephone. If you have a genuine medical emergency contact 999.
