NHS services for your healthcare

 Cross Hills Group Practice are available Monday to Friday 8am till 6pm with extended hours until 8.30pm on Mondays and Thursdays. Make an appointment with your GP when you have an illness that will not go away, for medical advice, examinations and prescriptions.


Outside of these hours do you know what healthcare options are available to you?


Visit your local pharmacy when you are suffering from a common health problem which does not require being seen by a nurse or doctor. See www.crosshillsgp.nhs.uk/new-pharmacy,44114.htm or visit www.cohenschemist.co.uk for more information. www.cohenschemist.co.uk

It is available across the whole of England making it easier for you to access urgent healthcare services when you need medical help fast.

It is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones

 Emergency departments are found at most hospitals. They help people who show signs of being very ill or are badly injured. If you telephone 999 and tell the operator that there is a medical emergency, a response vehicle will be sent to your location. Accident and Emergency services are very busy. They should be used in very serious or life-threatening situations.
