We can guide you towards the right healthcare professional for your treatment. If you require assistance with dental, eye or medicine issues, you may be able to get more specialist advice or treatment elsewhere. If this applies to you, see below for information on what to do next.

Problems with teeth or gums?

VISIT YOUR DENTIST

If you have toothache, jaw pain, sores, ulcers or unusual patches, lumps or swellings, your dentist is the best person to offer advice.

Problem with eyes or vision?

VISIT YOUR OPTICIANS

Eye emergencies or issues such as red eye, runny or dry eye will be seen and treated by most opticians for free.

Questions about medication?

VISIT YOUR PHARMACIST

Your pharmacist is an expert in medicines and should be your first port of call for all medication queries.
