Emergency Care: It’s really important that for emergencies like suspected stroke or heart attack you call 999 straightaway. With conditions like this every second counts – so don’t delay.

Urgent care and advice: If you need urgent care or advice about a medical condition you can still use NHS 111 (call 111 if you can't get help on-line), or contact your GP practice for help. For BSL use this video interpreter service for NHS 111. Whether you are concerned about a new health problem, or you have a long-term condition and your symptoms get worse, don’t put off getting in touch.

Routine care and appointments: Please use other vital services as normal, such as cancer screening and care, maternity appointments and mental health support.

Childrens’ services: If your child is unwell and you're worried, please get in touch with your GP, use NHS 111, or in serious cases, take them to hospital.

Children are less likely to become very unwell with COVID-19 than adults, but they do get sick – and when that happens, it’s important that they get the care that they need quickly.
