Get the Right Treatment

Finding Your Way GuideEvery year, millions of us visit our GP with minor health problems that can be easily resolved without a doctor’s appointment. It is estimated that every year, 50 million visits to the GP are made for minor ailments such as coughs and colds, mild eczema, and athlete’s foot. ​Many health care problems do not need a doctor or nurse.

It is important that everyone uses their GP and local A and E services wisely.
