Health and social care 


Visit your dentist for regular check ups, planned routine treatment and emergency care. To find a dentist to register with, contact the Dental Helpline on 01292 616815, Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4.30pm.


Visit your optician if you have any eye problems such as: blurred vision, difficulty seeing well or discomfort - for example, red, irritated, itchy, watery or sticky eyes.


Drop into your local pharmacy to get expert advice or information on medicines and healthcare. Under the Minor Ailment Service you might not need to pay for the medicine that the pharmacist may recommend. Examples of minor illnesses include: coughs and colds, indigestion, constipation, aches and pains.


For a speedy recovery, taking care of yourself is the best option when you have a minor illness or injury such as a hangover, grazed knee, sore throat, cough or cold.
