Where to go when your GP practice is closed
Pharmacists are also health experts and can provide advice on minor ailments when your GP practice is closed. Pharmacies in our CCG offer a Pharmacy First scheme that makes it easier to access health and advice when you need it, they can also give medicines for minor ailments so you do not have to visit your GP. For a full list of the pharmacies in Bradford which offer the Pharmacy First scheme and to find out more about how pharmacies can help you, click here.
Treating yourself at home
For minor illnesses such as coughs, colds and sore throats can be treated at home with medicines that you can buy over the counter. It is important to have a well-stocked medicines cabinet at home.
If you have an urgent health need that cannot wait until your GP practice opens, call 111. NHS 111 makes it easier for you to access local health services and is a free of charge number which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When you call 111, you will be assessed by a trained nurse or professional advisor. They will be able to give advice and information and will direct you to the local service that can help you best.
In the case of an emergency, call 999 or visit your local accident and emergency (A&E) department. To find out more about what constitutes an emergency, please click here.
