Before you come to the GP surgery for an appointment, have you done these three basic things?:
- Self-care – so can I look after this myself? Consult the Directory of Services to access the right help for your condition.
- Think Pharmacy First – Pharmacy First Minor Ailments is a service being offered by Community Pharmacies; please look at our website’s Common Illness Room for more information.
- NHS Choices – We also recommend using online resources like NHS choices, which gives advice and is written by trained clinicians.
