• NHS services across the North East & Yorkshire region are experiencing extremely high demand at the moment – this includes GP practices, which are extremely busy
• Please read the following to help advise you about NHS services during the Festive Holidays:
• If you want to check your symptoms, there is an on-line symptom checker available at 111.nhs.uk, which will re-direct you to a health professional if you need to be consulted by someone
· The 111 online service is effective and efficient and endorsed by your GP. You will be dealt with more quickly using 111 online than calling 111. Go to www.111.nhs.uk
Please reassure patients that they should attend their general practice appointments on industrial actions dates unless contacted and told otherwise.
