A pharmacist can advise you about non-prescription medication and help with minor concerns. They may also recommend that you see a doctor.
If you urgently need to see a dentist, dial 111 – this will put you through to an operator who will tell you where the nearest dentist with available appointments is. Please ask Reception if you need help with this.
