General Health Care Information

Check the sections below for information regarding healthcare issues in the Orston area.

NHS Direct is changing

The way you access health care information, advice and services on the telephone is changing. Over the next few months the 0845 4647 service is being replaced by NHS 111 in England.

You should call the NHS 111 service if you need medical help fast, but it’s not a 999 emergency.

You will be assessed, given advice and directed straightaway to the local service that can help you best. Calls to NHS 111 are free from landlines and mobile phones.

Check which service is available in our area.

You can also:

– check your symptoms online with the NHS Health and Symptom Checkers
– download the NHS health and symptom checker app
– access health advice and information on NHS Choices

What to do if you or your family are feeling ill

Particular health conditions

Local healthcare services, such as doctors, dentists or late night opening pharmacies.

Self help and support organisations

NHS Direct works hand in hand with other healthcare services provided by the NHS, helping you make the right choice to meet your needs. Calls to NHS Direct are charged at BT local rates. Other telephone service providers, including mobile operators, may charge different call rates. For patient safety, all calls are recorded.
