Help Us Help You

If you need medical help, the NHS is still here for you. It is important that patients who need urgent and emergency care for things such as stroke, heart attack, and other serious conditions seek help quickly. People should also use other vital services – such as cancer screening and care, maternity appointments and mental health support, as well as contact their GP for non-coronavirus illnesses.

If you think you have coronavirus, please follow the advice here.
