Your GP

Your GP

If you have an illness or injury that won’t go away make an appointment with your GP or telephone for advice. They provide a range of services by appointment and when absolutely essential can make home visits.

Some things GPs can help with are:

  • Flu jabs
  • Persistent ear pain
  • Persistent back ache
  • Persistent vomiting or diarrhoea
  • Allergic reactions
  • Long-term conditions
  • Counselling
  • Emotional problems.

When and why?

You can make an appointment with your practice for medical advice, examinations and prescriptions.

If you need to see a GP urgently when your practice is closed, you can:

I know my GP is open later some evenings and weekend days which makes it easier to get an appointment, even with my shift patterns. Now that we have the new NHS 111 telephone number, I know I can access my GP out of hours when my practice is closed, too; so it’s even easier for me to get help when I need it.
