Tools called Symptom Checkers can help to diagnose the problem

The website will ask you some questions about the person and their symptoms.

This can help you to arrive at a diagnosis and can help you to decide what sort of treatment you need and how urgently you need it.

This is not intended to be a substitute for the GP.

If you have any doubts then please call the GP or ring 111 if the practice is closed.

The NHS Choices Symptom checker websites and Apps often indicate which service you need to see – if any – and when .

e.g. it may recommend seeing the pharmacy, going to A&E or asking for an urgent or non-urgent GP appointment.

NHS Choices Symptom Checkers

Home medicine kit, Pharmacy, Practice Nurse, GP , A&E or other Service ?

There are many ways of getting help, and you may or may not need to see the GP before you can access the service that you would like. Many common conditions will get better on their own without needing medicines from the GP.

Reading the guides to managing common conditions will help us to help you & make it easier to speak with a GP when you need to.

The GP practice is not an emergency service – please call 999 if you have a medical emergency or

….  111 if you need general advice about a health condition.

The buttons below take you to some health websites that our doctors recommend for different reasons.

The NHS Choices Website has a good A-Z of health conditions and makes a good starting point.

Health A – Z of Conditions

The Healthtalk Online website seems to have more information about what its like to have an illness or condition. They have many videos and organise topics into the different aspects of the condition – e.g. living with pain.
