Step 4: List Useful Contact Details
To save you searching for numbers, it’s worth listing all useful contact details, for example your ICE contact (In Case of an Emergency), your dentist, your GP or any other useful local health services, especially if visiting relatives in an area you’re not familiar with.
If you need to contact your GP or dentist, out of hours, just contact your usual GP surgery or Dental practice number and follow the instructions on the messaging service.
If you need to see a GP whilst away outside of Wales (but still in the UK), contact a GP practice in the area and ask to be seen as a temporary patient.
