Healthy Advice Online
 
As  the weather gets colder and coughs and colds start to spread, it’s important to know where to turn for health advice and information. 
 
             Your local pharmacist is always a good source of advice
 
             There is also a website for Bucks – http://www.bucks.healthhelpnow.nhs.uk  which lists common symptoms and offers suggestions for treatment, with the one which works best for most people listed first. Health Help Now links through to local services, and shows whether they are open or closed, their location and  directions.  So if it’s a bank holiday it will tell you which pharmacies are open and show them on a map. 
 
The services section of the site provides direct links through to local GP websites, where in many cases you can now book appointments and order repeat  prescriptions online. 
 
However, if you’re worried or not sure, call 111 which is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and calls are free from landlines and mobile phones. 
 
If the illness or injury is life-threatening, don't hesitate. Call 999 straight away.
