How can I get an appointment?

Your own GP practice should always be your first port of call when you are unwell as in many cases you will have built up a good relationship with them and they are responsible for coordinating all aspects of your care.
If your own practice cannot provide a convenient appointment for you, and your health condition requires you to see a GP or prescribing nurse quickly, the best way to make an appointment is to telephone NHS 111.

It is really important that patients make the most of this additional GP and nurse time that is available. There are many things you can do to help us with this. You can plan ahead, order repeat prescriptions in plenty of time, prevent ill health by having the flu jab and use NHS 111 to get advice about which part of the health service is best to use.
