  • NHS 111 - If you’re not sure what to do and need medical advice fast, call 111 for free! There is also the online version at www.111.nhs.uk
  • Pharmacists (chemists) - Are a great source of health care advice and information. They are experts in medicines and will help you decide if you need to see a doctor.
  • GPs - Can help if you have an illness or injury that won't go away and any long standing condition. Other examples may include vomiting, ear pain, stomach ache and back ache.
  • A&E or 999 - Is for life threatening situations and emergencies, such as choking, chest pain, sever difficulty breathing, blacking out and blood loss.
