If you are not sure what to do and we are closed,
please dial 111 for advice from the NHS 111 service.


Many minor ailments are self-limiting (which means they get better over time) and can be treated or symptoms alleviated with over the counter medicines e.g. pain killers for aches and pains, creams and medicines for insect bites, cold sores and other minor skin irritations, cough and cold, indigestion and heart burn remedies. The local pharmacists can give you more information and advice. If you have a minor illness and you are no better within a couple of days or your symptoms are worsening please DO get in touch.
