HELP US HELP YOU
This December, NHS England and NHS Improvement has launched the next phase of the latest ‘Help Us, Help You’ campaign which focuses on the NHS 111 service as a new way to access A&E.
If you have an urgent but not life-threatening medical need, make sure you contact NHS 111 first rather than going straight to A&E. If you do need urgent care, then NHS 111 can now book you in to be seen quickly and safely in A&E. As well as this, NHS 111 is also able to direct to or book an appointment at Urgent Treatment Centres, GP surgeries, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics.
Contacting 111 first will also help the NHS to keep you safe by maintaining social distancing and ensure that you receive the right care in the right place, in a more timely and safe way.
If you or your loved one have a life-threatening illness or injury then you should always use 999 and if you do arrive at A&E without contacting NHS 111 you will still receive medical care, with emergency treatments prioritised.
Just think 111 first. When you think you need A&E, contact NHS 111 by phone or online

Victoria Road Surgery
There is no car park at the Victoria Road Surgery. Parking is very limited. Patients may park on Victoria Road for a maximum of 30 minutes without a permit, but the Traffic Wardens are very keen. If you think you may be more than 30 minutes in the surgery, a parking permit may be obtained from reception but you will have to leave your keys to ensure return of the permit when leaving.
There is one disabled parking bay in front of the building which does not need a permit, but may only be used by disabled patients.
