It is important that if you are unwell or undergoing treatment that you still contact your doctor. Doctors and health centres are open in all alert levels.

Most doctors and nurses are delivering services differently during the COVID-19 restrictions and will talk to you over the phone before deciding whether they need to see you in person.

If you are seen in person, your doctor or other staff may be wearing PPE such as a mask, gloves and/or a gown.

If your doctor or health centre is not available, you could phone Healthline (free) on 0800 611 116 and check what other services are available.

If it is a medical emergency get help by calling 111.
