Questions about symptoms
If you have serious concerns about symptoms, we recommend that you see a medical professional as soon as possible. But if you want more information or guidance about something that’s not causing you great concern, you can call the GP helpline 24 hours a day. Our GPs can only help with medical questions, but they’ll always let you know if a face to face examination or emergency treatment is advisable.
Questions about medical information, drugs, or treatments
You’re welcome to call our GP helpline if you have questions about drugs or treatments, or any kind of medical care. For example, if you’re worried about the side-effects of a prescribed drug, you can call the GP helpline. Our qualified staff won’t have access to your personal medical records, but they can give you information about treatments, drugs and care.
Questions about upcoming hospital care or treatment
If you’re worried about going into hospital, you can call the GP helpline. Our GPs can give you general information about treatments and what to expect, but they may not have specific details about the hospital you’re visiting.
