Other Sources of Help or Advice

Health care and advice can be obtained from a number of other places in addition to the medical centre:

 

NHS 111

Call 111 when your need is less urgent than 999. Calls are free from both landlines and mobile phones.

NHS Walk-in Centre

The NHS Walk-in Centre is located at the Sheffield City GP Health Centre on Broad Lane, Sheffield, S1 3BP and is open every day from 08:00 to 22:00. No appointment is needed, and patients can be seen and advised by a nurse for minor illnesses, confidential advice, emergency contraception, etc. Telephone Sheffield (0114) 241 2700

 

Minor Injuries Unit

This unit is located at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, and offers advice and treatment for minor injuries such as small cuts, grazes, sprains, etc.

 

Accident and Emergency Department

Located at the Northern General Hospital, this unit deals with more serious injuries and illnesses. If a fracture is suspected, or a deep cut which may need suturing, the A&E department offers the best way to assess and treat the injury. 

 

Community Pharmacist Advice

Pharmacists are qualified to give advice on common complaints, and can answer questions about medicines, and staying healthy. If you visit your local community pharmacy (chemist), they can advise you whether or not your symptoms suggest that a visit to see us at the surgery is necessary. There is a local project for people who have a current exemption from prescription charges and who are suffering from minor ailments – ask the receptionist for a leaflet explaining the scheme where you can obtain some medicines free of charge direct from the chemist. 

 

And finally, you can often Look After Yourself!

Many minor illnesses, such as colds, headaches and sore throats, can be easily treated at home using medicines available over the counter from a local pharmacy. If in doubt, ask the pharmacist, or ask to speak to the practice nurse or doctor, who will be able to advise you.

 

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
