Your GP can provide a range of services by appointment, including medical advice, examinations, vaccinations, and prescriptions. An appointment with your GP is the best way to access other NHS services you might need such as talking therapies. If you have an illness or injury that won't go away, then it's best to make an appointment with your GP.
GPs are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week via the out of hours service. You can access this by calling your GP's normal number.
