When you have an illness or injury that just won’t go away, make an appointment to see your General Practitioner (GP).
Your GP will carry out detailed examinations and provide advice, information and prescriptions. Your GP also provides routine monitoring and management of ongoing health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease and can also provide most contraceptive services, minor surgery, maternity services, immunisations and screening (e.g. smears and child health).
Your doctor can also refer you to a specialist healthcare professional for tests and treatment.
Everyone needs to register at their local GP surgery. To find your nearest GP practice, please enter your Postcode in the search box to the right.
If you become unwell when your GP surgery is closed and can't wait for your surgery to re-open or have a more serious illness that can’t be treated by a pharmacist, then you can get assistance by calling NHS 24 on 111.
