GP practices are there to support you with a range of new and ongoing health concerns. The doctors, nurses and other health professionals at your local GP practice treat many conditions and give health advice. They can also refer you to other NHS services.
You should be able to book or change an appointment at your GP practice:
⦁ online, find out more about how to start using online services
⦁ by phone
⦁ in person, by going into the surgery and talking to the receptionist
In some GP practices, you may also be able to have a consultation online or over the phone. Speak to your GP for more information about online and phone consultations.
Call your GP practice if you need an urgent appointment. If your GP is closed and you cannot wait until they re-open please use NHS 111.
You can call any GP surgery to get emergency treatment for up to 14 days if you are not registered with a GP or are away from home.
If your treatment will last longer than 14 days, you’ll have to register as a temporary or permanent resident. Read more about:
