• FOR MOST, IT'S CLOSE

    Shortcut your way to the care you need.

    Closer and faster health advice and care are available much nearer to home than you might realise.

  • Think twice before asking your GP for antibiotics

    Cold? Flu .... Take care, not antibiotics!

    Remember ….

    • Antibiotics won’t work in the case of a cold or the flu
    • Take antibiotics responsibly and only when they are prescribed by your doctor
    • Keeping antibiotics effective is everyone’s responsibility

  • It’s not a 999 emergency, but you need medical help fast.

    Call 111 and speak to a trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals.

Who are we and what do we do?
