GP Appointments - 11 December adverse weather advice for patients

Adverse weather advice for Sandwell and West Birmingham residents

The Met Office has issued an 'amber' weather warning for today (10 December)  - where there is a medium chance of danger to life - with emergency services calling on the public to only use 999 in a genuine life-threatening emergency.

Travelling is becoming difficult for many, so residents should think about how they could best access any healthcare they need – and how to avoid a lengthy trip to an Accident and Emergency Department. The best option may be to stay at home to recover, to visit a pharmacy for treatment, use a walk-in or urgent care centre, or to call NHS 111 for advice and signposting to a healthcare service.

Be prepared - stock up your medicine cabinet now!

It always pays to be prepared – especially over the winter period when the weather can prevent us getting out and about. That’s why the advice from the NHS in the Black Country is to have a well-stocked medicine cabinet for times when you or your family are feeling under the weather.
