Do you need to see a GP? In Inverclyde over the last few years various other Health Care professionals will accept a self referral rather than needing to see your GP. This should give you the opportunity to see the most appropriate person who may be able to resolve your issues more effectively than your GP, who would most likely refer you to them anyway.
If you have any mouth problems such as toothache or an abscess then please contact your Dentist . If you do not have a Dentist then please see the leaflet for addresses and phone numbers. Click here for leaflet.
For many minor ailments you can go directly to your local Chemist/Pharmacist who is able to issue medication if that is appropriate for your condition, thus saving you making a GP appointment. Click here for leaflet.
