NHS Ayshire & Arran

We have been notified of a change to how to contact NHS Ayshire & Arran for NON-LIFE THREATENING CONDITIONS:

While people in Ayrshire and Arran should continue to call 999 or go directly to A&E in emergencies, those with non-life threatening conditions who would usually visit A&E should call NHS 24 – day or night – from 3 November. People can also continue to call their GP practice for urgent care or access help online from NHSinform.scot
