People in Leeds are being reminded that their NHS is here for them over the bank holiday weekend, including GP appointments as well as access to emergency care.

    2. Use your pharmacy
    3. Call your doctor

NHS 111

For accidents and unexpected health problems, visit NHS 111 on line or call 111. It’s free and is a fast and easy way for people to get the right help, whatever their health needs and whatever the time of day or night.

Callers to 111 are put through to a team of highly-skilled call advisers, who are supported by experienced nurses. They use a clinical assessment system and ask questions to assess callers’ needs and determine the most appropriate course of action.

Use your pharmacy

Pharmacists are experts in medicines and can help you with minor health concerns. You do not need an appointment to get advice from a pharmacist but to keep you, other patients and staff safe please do not walk-in to a pharmacy if you have symptoms of coronavirus.

As qualified healthcare professionals, they can offer clinical advice and over-the-counter medicines for a range of minor illnesses, such as coughs, colds, sore throats, tummy trouble and aches and pains.

If symptoms suggest it’s something more serious, pharmacists have the right training to make sure you get the help you need. For example they will tell you if you need to contact your GP practice.

Call your doctor

  • Although most practices will be closed, appointments with GPs and other healthcare staff are still available.
  • Appointments must be pre-booked – by calling your own GP practice or by ringing NHS 111. The appointment may not be at your usual GP practice but at a nearby surgery referred to as an extended access hub.
  • Most appointments will be by telephone or through video consultation, but face to face appointments are still offered if necessary, with patients being advised accordingly.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus do not go to a GP, pharmacy or hospital.

Coronavirus symptoms:

  • high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Getting tested for coronavirus

If you think you have symptoms of coronavirus you should stay at home and self-isolate for 10 days, only leaving the house to get tested. Tests can be booked by visiting or calling NHS 119.

Should your symptoms get worse or you feel you’re struggling to cope, please call NHS 111 or 999 in an emergency. Let the call talker know that you have coronavirus symptoms. You must not go to a GP, pharmacy or hospital unless you have been told to do so.
