If you have a non urgent medical problem when the surgery is closed you can get advice from your local pharmacist or by calling NHS 111.
All of the community pharmacies in Gateshead and Newcastle participate in the Think Pharmacy First scheme so if you don’t usually pay for your medicines you will get them free.
Please only attend A&E if you have a genuine life-threatening emergency, such as:
- loss of consciousness
- acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
- persistent, severe chest pain
- breathing difficulties
- severe bleeding that cannot be stopped
- severe allergic reactions
- severe burns or scalds
Less severe injuries can be treated in urgent care centres or minor injuries units (MIUs). An A&E is not an alternative to a GP appointment.
If the practice is closed you can call NHS 111, which will direct you to the best local service to treat your injury. Alternatively, you can visit an NHS walk-in centre (WIC), which will also treat minor illnesses without an appointment.
