Choose Well

Introduction
If you are feeling unwell but you are not sure of the best course of action to take, then our simple Choose Well guide will help you decide. There are a range of local NHS services to choose from and you don't always need to see a GP or go to A&E.

Self Care - This is the best choice to treat very minor illnesses, ailments and injuries. A range of common illnesses and complaints can be treated with a well stocked medicine cabinet and plenty of rest. Click here for more information about self care

111 Service - This is a new NHS telephone number being introduced to help make it easier for you to access local health services.  You can now call 111 when you need medical help fast, but it is not a 999 emergency.

You will be assessed, given advice and directed straightaway to the local service that can help you best.  That could be A&E, an Urgent Care Centre or Minor Injuries Unit, an out of hours GP, community nurse, emergency dentist or a late opening pharmacist.

You can ring the 111 number 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  Calls from landlines and mobile phones are free.

Pharmacy - Your local chemist can provide confidential, expert advice and treatment for a range of common illnesses and complaints, without having to wait for a GP appointment or go to your A&E. Click here for more information about your local Pharmacies

GP services - Your GP can help if you have an illness or injury that won’t go away. Simply make an appointment.   

GP out of hours service - If it’s an emergency and you need care after hours, call your GP surgery and listen to the message which will let you know what to do.

Walk in centres and minor injuries - There are a number of walk in centres in the area. Click here for more information.

Accident and Emergency - An emergency is a critical or life-threatening situation, and A&E departments or the 999 ambulance service should only be used in these situations. Click here for more information.
