Right Care Right Time

Why wait to see your doctor? You may not need to…

When you’re not very well, you just want to get help as soon as possible.

Sometimes your doctor isn’t the best person to see. Instead it may be better to see a pharmacist, dentist, physiotherapist or other specialist.

Take a look at the alternative services available in Stockport below, if you are unsure please contact your GP Practice Receptionist who will be able to advise you on the best service to contact or if you do need a GP appointment they will get you booked in.

There is nothing that you need to do as unless you notify us differently, your existing contact details will remain on your GP health record for use in this way. It is also important to make sure that you tell us about any changes to your contact details as we will always use the details that we have on your record until we are informed differently.

What to do if you have a FLU like illness

If you're otherwise fit and healthy, there's usually no need to see a doctor if you have flu-like symptoms.

The best remedy is to rest at home, keep warm and drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration (http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Dehydration/Pages/Introduction.aspx) . You can take paracetamol (http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Painkillers-paracetamol/Pages/Introduction.aspx) or ibuprofen (http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Painkillers-ibuprofen/Pages/Introduction.aspx) to lower a high temperature and relieve aches if necessary.

Stay off work or school until you're feeling better. For most people, this will take about a week.
