When to contact local GP practices
GP practices are here to deal with problems that cannot be dealt with through other simple means. So firstly consider if you could ask the local Pharmacy for advice or look up advice on the links provided on this website. If you cannot find the help you want then contact the nearest GP practice to where you are staying.
The GP practice can help you better if you can provide some basic information, so it helps to be clear on what the problem is and to provide any other information you think is important – such as ongoing illnesses and lists of any medication. The GP practice can then work out the best way to help and this might not necessarily be by offering you an appointment. For instance they may take your contact details, and then go and ask the doctor for advice before phoning you back. They may direct you to a different service if they are unable to manage your problem- for things such as injuries. Or they could arrange an appointment for you to be seen.
