To give me the best care

NHS emergency services are there for you in emergency and life-saving situations. For medical treatment when it is not an emergency, there are many other services available:

  • Call 111 for advice and help 24 hours a day
  • Go to your GP or use an out-of hours GP service
  • Visit NHS Choices – the biggest health website in the UK
  • Find a local Walk-in Centre, Urgent Treatment Centre or Minor Injuries Unit – you don’t need an appointment
  • Go to a local or late night pharmacy – they do more than just dispense prescriptions and medicines
