Getting the right care

This winter, please help us by getting the right care in the right place by:

  • searching NHSInform.Scot for self-help advice on common symptoms and a guide to local services and opening times
  • visiting your local pharmacy first to help treat minor illnesses, many can provide consultations without an appointment and prescribe medicines previously only available from your GP
  • calling the GP practice for routine or urgent care during normal opening hours
  • contacting your dentist for dental problems or an optician for eye problems
  • calling 111, day or night, for minor injuries advice and treatment or for urgent care when your GP or dental practice is closed
  • dialing 999 or attend A&E ONLY in a critical emergency
