We try to keep our GP appointments for patients with more serious health problems.
Before you book an appointment to see a GP, please consider whether an appointment with our Practice Nurses, our Assistant Practitioner or the Community Pharmacist might be appropriate. They can help you with a wide range of medical problems.
Our Receptionists can help you decide which is the right person for you to see, if you give them a brief description of your problem.
If you have a cough, cold, headache or other minor ailment try treating yourself at home first. Find out more about treatments for common minor ailments.
Please remember that self-care for common conditions can help free up our GPs’ time, making it easier to get an appointment when you have a more serious condition.
Your Pharmacist can help too
Pharmacists are highly trained health professionals and can give you confidential health advice for a range of common illnesses and complaints.
You can call the Community Pharmacy in St. David’s or drop in – there’s no need to make an appointment. There are other Community Pharmacies in Haverfordwest, Goodwick and Fishguard.
Your Pharmacists can also help you decide if you need to see a Doctor or Nurse.
You can call NHS Direct on 0845 46 47 for more advice, to check your symptoms or for more information about local services.
A&E is for life-threatening accidents and emergencies only. Before you go there, ask yourself, “Is it a real emergency?”
If not, please consider using other local health services before you visit A&E.
