Self Care for Minor Ailments and Minor Illnesses

It is worth noting that many minor ailments and illnesses do not require doctor assessment or input.

Before calling the surgery we ask that you consider visiting your local pharmacist,  who is highly trained to give advice on treatment of many things including eye symptoms, rashes, skin infections, coughs, sinusitis and musculoskeletal problems. They are able to advise on over the counter treatments that are available and will always sign post to a doctor if they feel this is necessary.

Please also consider looking at where there is excellent advice on self management and when to seek help from your GP.
