The way to access urgent care has changed. To protect us and the NHS, its important you know how to get the right care in the right place.
Phone NHS 24 on 111 for urgent care: If you think you need to visit A&E but its not life threatening, you can now phone NHS24 on 111 day or night.
Phone 111 if you:
– think you need to go to A&E but its not life threatening
-are too ill to wait for your GP practice to open
-have worsening symptoms of coronavirus.
NHS 24 will help you get the right care in the right place, often closer to home and without the need to go to A&E. Or, you can still phone us, your GP Practice, as normal during opening hours.
If its a life threatening emergency, you should phone 999 or go directly to A&E
