Many minor ailments are self-limiting (they naturally get better over time) and can be treated or symptoms alleviated with over the counter medicines e.g. pain killers for aches and pains, creams and medicines for insect bites, cold sores and other minor skin irritations, cough and cold, indigestion and heart burn remedies. The local pharmacists can give you more information and advice. If you have a minor illness and you are no better within a couple of days or your symptoms are worsening please DO get in touch.

999 and A&E departments are for medical emergencies

GP out –of-hours service is for urgent medical problems that cannot wait until we reopen

If you take regular medication please always ensure that you have enough to cover the weekend. Repeat prescription orders take 48 hours for us to process, longer if medication reviews or blood tests are needed so please plan ahead.
