If it is a life-threatening emergency, dial 111 to call an ambulance.

If you become unwell at any time, ring your usual medical practice.

If your usual GP is not available, you will be able to get advice and health care close to home – there are A+M clinics open extended hours, including 24 hours/day. You can access free care for children aged under 13, and cheaper visits for people over 65 and for high user/community service cards holders.
