How to access help and support
If you are worried, remember NHS and Social Care services are contactable and remain open. Depending on your symptoms, you can get advice from your local pharmacy, GP practice or NHS 111.
For minor health concerns, your local pharmacist can help. GP practices offer remote consultations online or by phone, or if you need a face-to-face appointment, they will tell you what to do to get this.
If you need medical help fast, think you need to go to an Emergency Department (A&E) or you’re not sure what to do, use NHS 111 first – online or by phone to get clinical advice or direction to the most appropriate services for treatment.
For dental treatment, contact your dental practice for information and advice. If you do not have a regular dentist and need urgent care, ring 111 – they will guide you to your nearest NHS dentist for Advice, Antibiotics or Analgesia (AAA), and can also help you contact an urgent dental service or arrange treatment if needed at an Urgent Dental Care Hub. For further information and to search for dentists in the local area, please visit the NHS website
