Noticeboard

Please call 111 if you need emergency medical attention

If you need medical help between the hours of 6.30pm and 8am there are many services in place to treat people who urgently need healthcare, but it isn’t a serious or life threatening emergency.

If you are unsure of the service you need, or need immediate medical advice you should call NHS 111. They can give you advice and if you need to speak directly to a health care professional then they are available on the other end of the phone, whatever the time of day or night.

Walk in services are also available at Loughborough Urgent Care Centre.

If you do need to go to the emergency department, please think about if you can manage to get there using your own transport, or a taxi. Ambulances in the area will always prioritise the most serious cases first, so if your condition is not serious or life threatening and it’s safe to do so, we would recommend seeing if you can get family or friends to help you get to the emergency department. If you’re not sure, ring NHS 111 and they will advise you.

Please do not book an appointment or attend the GP Practice if: You think you might have coronavirus or in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with high risk of coronavirus or you've been in contacts with someone with coronavirus instead call 111 if you need to speak to someone or use the NHS111 online coronavirus service https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19
