If your child is sick and you feel they need to be seen the same day by a doctor, please call the Telephone Assessment Service (TAS) via your local medical centre or direct on 0521 305 3961. The TAS will advise you on the most appropriate care.
There are specific urgent GP appointments available every day for sick children at the Medical Centre.
In an emergency, call an ambulance on 112 or take them directly to A&E. For everything else, phone the TAS as above for advice.
If you take your child to A&E at the local hospital, please be aware you may need to wait a long time, as patients are treated in order of urgency of the condition.
