Managing your health at home
Get NHS help online
The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak means you should stay at home as much as possible, but it's still easy to get NHS help using your smartphone, tablet or computer.
The NHS Help at Home webpage has information to help you:
- order repeat prescriptions
- contact your GP
- find out about urgent dental treatment
- manage long-term conditions
- maintain your mental and physical wellbeing
If you need an NHS service, try to do it online first. This helps everyone to follow social distancing.
When to go in person
You should still go to hospital in a serious or life-threatening emergency, or if you feel very unwell.
You should also continue to attend appointments for ongoing treatment, unless you have been told not to.
Otherwise, speak to the GP, hospital or other NHS care provider. They will tell you if you need to go in person.
