Help in a hurry

Need help in a hurry? NHS 24 can help. NHS 24 operates an out-of-hours phone service, providing help if the surgery is closed and you are too ill to wait until it re-opens. Call 111 any time, day or night.

Further speedy advice can be available from NHS Inform, the organisation which provides a single source of quality assured health information for the public in Scotland. NHS Inform’s self-help guides allow you to check your symptoms online, get advice to manage your condition, and can signpost you to the right service.
