I wanted to let everyone know that due to a high volume of questions over the weekend, we may take longer than 2 working days to get back to you. Please bear with us - we will answer every question.
If you would like to speak to a nurse sooner, you can always give us a call on 0808 808 00 00, Mon-Fri, 9-8. For anything urgent or worrying, please don't hesitate to contact your local GP or cal NHS 111.
