Feeling unwell? Making the right choice helps us all.

To help you choose the right healthcare service, we have compiled this guide to ensure you get the right care from the right people.

  • Plan ahead, stock your medicine cupboard and order any repeat prescriptions you may need early. This can be done via the NHS app or visiting to find your nearest pharmacy.
  • If you have loved ones who are due to leave hospital, please support safe and timely discharges by collecting them ASAP to free up beds for those in need of hospital care.
  • We’ve compiled a handy guide below to ensure you choose the right healthcare service, to get the right care from the right people. It also includes bank holiday opening times for urgent treatment and walk-in centres.

If you need medical help fast, please visit NHS 111 online or dial 111.

However, for life threatening emergencies, please dial 999 or go straight to A&E.
