      • if you don’t have a family doctor
      • if you’re feeling unwell but you’re not sure if you need to see a doctor
      • for advice about what’s happening for you and next steps
      • if you want some advice about a family member or a friend who’s sick (if you are with them)
      • if you want advice on finding services near you – you can also check
