3 before GP“Think 3 before GP”

Every 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. We have a dedicated page on this web site to help you identify the right Health Care Professional.

Please note that Woodhead Medical Practice telephone lines will be closed for routine enquiries between 1pm and 2pm every day to allow time for staff training and service development. You can still phone the surgery during that time for an emergency.
