  • Bristol City Council – #wearebristol coronavirus hotline

 

0800 694 0184 – Monday – Friday 8.30 – 17.00

 

Bristol City Council have set up - The We Are Bristol support phone number – 0117 352 3011 – went live yesterday, and will offer support to residents across the city.

 

Call handlers will be available initially during office hours (8.30am-5pm, Monday to Friday) to provide support for people with a wide range of needs, including obtaining food supplies, other essential items and medication. They can also help arrange follow-up support with different organisations.

 

Every year, millions of people visit the GP with minor health problems that local pharmacists could resolve.

It's estimated 50 million visits to the GP are made every year for minor ailments such as coughs and colds, mild eczema and athlete's foot.

But by visiting your pharmacy instead, you could save yourself time and trouble. Instead of booking and waiting for a GP appointment, you can visit your local pharmacist any time – just walk in.

All pharmacists can recognise many common health complaints. They can give advice or, where appropriate, medicines that will help clear up the problem.

If your problem is more serious and needs the attention of a GP, your pharmacist will recognise this and advise you to see your GP instead.

What's more, many pharmacies are open in the evenings and on the weekends.
