You should still access your NHS when you need it, particularly in urgent cases.You can still ring 999 or go to A&E, and your GP practice is open for business because the Doctors will consult with you by telephone and can use video technology if required.
When to call 999 and attend A&E:
- Chest pain
- Severe bleeding
- A serious injury
- If you think you’re having a stroke
When to call your GP:
- Concerns regarding ongoing conditions
- Ear discharge / pain

- Any cancer symptoms such as lump in your breast, changes in bowel habits, blood in your pee or poo, unexplained weight loss, moles that appear to change or cough that you’ve had for three weeks or more (see NHS.uk for more information)
If you have coronavirus symptoms, please mention this when calling your GP practice, calling 999 or when you arrive at A&E.
