Accessing your GP and health services this winter

GP practices offer online services 24-7. To book appointments, request sick notes and order repeat prescriptions, download the NHS App. You can also save time and consult with your GP practice online via their website. Alternatively, you can phone them.

Watch the NHS’s animation that explains how you can continue to access GP services, including how to get in contact, the different ways care may be delivered, and how face-to-face appointments have changed.

  • If you think you need to go to A&E, call 111 first or click www.111.nhs.uk. Clinicians will advise you on where to go, or what to do next, and can book a time to attend a service – such as a hospital, pharmacy or GP practice – where appropriate.
  • Many minor illnesses and injuries like coughs, colds, grazes, small cuts or a sore throat can be treated at home or in holiday accommodation. Be prepared for common health problems by keeping a well-stocked medicine cabinet.
  • Pharmacists advise and treat illnesses like hay fever, diarrhoea, earache, painful cough, sticky eye, teething and rashes. By visiting your pharmacy, you can avoid an unnecessary trip to your GP or A&E and save time. Find your nearest pharmacy online.
  • If you are an adult and need urgent mental health support, call: Devon and Torbay 0300 555 5000; Plymouth 01752 434 922 (24 hours). For children and young people’s support in Plymouth (including for parents and carers) call 01752 435 122.
