If your condition is life threatening please call 999 for ambulance service. If your appointment this week is not urgent we encourage you to cancel and rebook.

Please self care where you feel able and use NHS choices, patient.co.uk, your local pharmacy (if open) and NHS24 for advice. Please only attend emergency departments if you have a serious accident or have a life threatening emergency.
If you can also be patient with staff and clinicians who are covering for other colleagues we would be very grateful. This may mean you wait a little longer for your call to be answered or to see your GP.
