Easter Advice

Happy Easter everyone! Here's some advice for patients over the Easter period:

Conditions which can't wait for 1½ hours, i.e. choking, chest pain, blacking out, blood loss, stroke etc will be an emergency so please call 999 immediately.

If you think you have a broken bone and may need an x-ray, or if you have a severe burn, please go to A&E.

Consider your local Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) for expert help with minor injuries.

If you run out of your regular prescribed medication a number of pharmacies can provide an emergency supply. See the Shropdoc website for details www.shropdoc.org.uk/patient-services/prescriptions

Your local pharmacist may also be able to help with minor illnesses.

Check online for advice. Try NHS Choices www.nhs.uk or NHS Direct www.nhsdirect.wales.nhs.uk

If you need general health advice over the phone please call 111.

If you feel that you need urgent medical attention that cannot wait until your own surgery is open please call Shropdoc on 0333 222 66 55.
