If you need medical help fast, but it is not life threatening, then call 111

You can call the NHS number 111 first if you need medical advice or re-assurance about what to do next, or you don't have a GP to call, or think you might need to go to hospital.

If 111 is not yet available where you are, then the old number is
NHS Direct 0845 4647.

The NHS website has plenty of helpful advice about symptoms, local services, European health Insurance etc.
