RECENT calls by health chiefs for members of the public to go to their GPs and pharmacies for non emergencies are all well and good.

But what if you can’t actually get a timely appointment at your doctors?

If you’re in pain – which may well be something innocuous and non-life threatening but you don’t know that until you get checked out.

You can’t reasonably be expected to wait a week or so to see your GP if you are suffering.

I’m sure more people would go their GP first, if they could be seen on the same day.
