How can I manage my health without going to the GP or other health service

If you have an appointment at your GP or at the hospital you should absolutely still go to it. Especially if it is for something like tests to rule out cancer.

You can also access a great deal of medical services at home online.

While you are at home it’s still easy to get NHS help using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Health at Home webpage has information letting you know how to:

  • contact your GP
  • order repeat prescriptions
  • manage long-term conditions
  • maintain your mental and physical wellbeing

If you need an NHS service, try to do it online first. If you cannot get what you need this way try asking a friend or family member to help you, or speak to your GP surgery on the phone.
