All doctors, gps and pharmacists articles

The healthcare provided by our National Health Service (NHS) in the UK is important to all of us. This page is about how to access a GP (or doctor’s) surgery, to make sure you get the healthcare you need.

Pharmacists or chemists are experts in the use and effect of medicines. You can get advice, medicines and some treatments in pharmacies without waiting to see your GP.

Urgent Treatment centres are for patients who want fast and convenient access to healthcare advice, information and treatment for minor illnesses and injuries.

General Practitioners (GPs) provide a wide range of health services. They provide consultations in their practices and through home visits.
