Community Pharmacy or GP

Advice:

Your community pharmacy can give you advice.

Alternatively, if your symptoms are not settling, please submit an online medical consultation request for the GP Clinical Team giving us as much information about your problem as you can. Please provide a photograph when requested if you can. We will respond usually with an offer of an appointment with a GP or other suitable clinician to assess your problem further.

If you have a large painful swelling that you feel may be an abscess, please submit an online medical consultation request for the Urgent Medical Problem Team giving us as much information about your problem as you can and ideally also a photograph. You will get a same-day response usually by telephone or a time to attend the surgery for further assessment and examination.

Further information about boils available from NHS UK
