Do you need A&E?
At a time when there is unprecedented demand for A&E, please think about your alternative care options…
Pharmacies for diarrhoea, minor infections, headaches and bites or stings.
GP surgeries for feverish children, vomiting, ear pain, feeling ill.
NHS 111 if you’re unwell, unsure, confused and if you need help asap.
Out of hours GP via NHS 111 if you urgently need a GP during the evening or at a weekend.
A&E is for emergencies – chest pain, suspected stroke, blacking out, bleeding you can’t stop, or if you are struggling to breathe.
