Contact NHS 111 by phone or online at any time of day or night, to find out where you should go and when.
If needed, expert clinicians will arrange for you to be seen at the emergency department or at our range of other treatment units. Please don’t just turn up, as you may be directed elsewhere or have to wait longer.
This will help the NHS manage the flow of patients when capacity in waiting rooms is much smaller than before, to maintain distancing and reduce the risk of infection.
It means you will get the right treatment, more quickly, and probably closer to home as well.
