Where can I obtain medical advice when i-HEART is closed?
i-HEART was never designed to replace your GP surgery, but to offer alternative ways of accessing medical treatment at times when your GP surgery is closed. You should always contact your GP in the first instance to discuss any medical concerns you have.
If you are unable to access an appointment with your GP, you can continue to call i-HEART during our revised opening hours. When our phone lines are closed, you should call NHS111 for non-emergencies and call 999 for emergencies.
