If you need access to care urgently, but it’s not life threatening, you should always first phone NHS 24 on 111, or, speak to your local GP before attending A&E. They will give you advice depending on your symptoms. This could be managing symptoms at home, or visiting your local pharmacy. If you need to see an on-call doctor or other health professional, they will arrange this for you.

In the case of a life-threatening emergency, always call 999.
