If you, or a member of your family, are unwell over the Christmas and New Year period, follow this handy guide on what to do and where to seek help:
Care for yourself at home
If you have a common health issue, like a cough, cold, sore throat or headache make sure you get plenty of rest and take your usual painkillers or medicines, if you need them (always read the label).
Call your GP
Your GP surgery will be closed on the following days:
- Monday 25 December
- Tuesday 26 December
- Monday 1 January
However, you can still phone your GP surgery and follow the instructions on the recorded message, which will help you find the best NHS service for your needs. This service is also available when your GP surgery is closed on other days.
