If you need urgent health advice, it is really important to make the right choice about where to go.
NHS 111: If you have a medical problem which cannot wait until the Surgery re-opens, please dial 111 to access the NHS 111 service. The service is available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year to respond to people’s healthcare needs. Calls are free from landlines and mobiles.
Pharmacist: Many common illnesses can be treated at home. Ask your pharmacist for advice on the best medicines and treatments for minor ailments. To find your local pharmacy and its opening times (many are open late into the evening), see www.nhs.net.
GP Services: If you have a less urgent illness or injury you should make an appointment with your GP. Knowing what to do when your GP surgery is closed is particulary important. When the surgery is closed and you have an urgent medical problem that can't wait until the surgery reopens, please call NHS 111 to access the NHS 111 service.
Walk- in Centre: If you have a minor injury, the nurse-led Walk-in Centre at Woking is open Monday to Friday 7am to 7.30pm and Saturday and Sunday 9am to 7pm. (Last patients are seen 30 minutes before the stated closing time). You don't need an appointment. Their hours may vary over the Bank Holiday periods, so telephone 01483 846209 to confirm. Please note they are not able to treat children under 2 years of age.
A&E: If you are seriously ill or badly injured, you should go straight to A&E or call 999. Please only use these services if you really need them as using A&E and ambulance services inappropriately may prevent them from helping critically ill patients who urgently need their help.
