Life threatening situation? Always call 112

When should I call?

Do you urgently need a GP in the evening, at night or during the weekend? Then you need to call the out-of-hours GP practice.

Urgent symptoms are health symptoms which can’t wait until you can visit your own GP the next working day. For example, worsening shortness of breath, paralysis symptoms, severe pain, a seriously ill child or an accident at home. Or if you’re concerned enough to want to request medical advice!
