This service is not run by the Council and information should be used for contact purposes only
Service Description: Health advice can be provided by your GP (doctor). Doctors look after the health of people in their local community and deal with a whole range of health problems. They also give health education and advice on things like smoking and diet, run clinics, give vaccinations and carry out simple surgical operations.
GPs usually work with a team including nurses, health visitors and midwives, as well as a range of other health professionals such as physiotherapists and occupational therapists. They will refer you to one of these professionals if they cannot give advice.
