If you are not feeling well over the festive period, please take some time to think about where you should go for help.
Many common ailments, such as colds and flu or stomach upsets can be treated without you going to GPs or local hospitals. Pharmacists often provide the appropriate help or advice you need so you can enjoy your Christmas break with your family.
Take control of your health and make sure you have a fully stocked medicine cabinet to help you deal with any unexpected illness. Be prepared by checking our guide here: https://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Pharmacy/Pages/Yourmedicinecabinet.aspx
Don’t forget there is the free NHS child health app gives easy to understand guidance on childhood illnesses. It can help you recognise when your child is unwell, and give advice on when and where to seek further treatment.
Urgent healthcare appointments
Since 1 April 2017, 4 extended hours GP centres have been available for people living in the Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland areas. The centres provide appointments during the week from 6pm until 9.30pm, and on weekends and Bank Holidays (including the Christmas holidays) from 8am until 9.30pm when your GP practice is closed. You can access appointments in the extended hours centres, which are based in North Ormesby, Redcar, Linthorpe and Brotton through your own GP practice.
