Every country will have their own norms when it comes to who to contact for specific instances. Here we run through some helpful lines of contact that you may need whilst here in the UK.
If you are experiencing mild symptoms and would like assistance on what over the counter medicines to take you can visit a pharmacy and a pharmacist can assist you with minor conditions.
If you need advice or care from a GP then call your local practice and make an appointment. See how to register with a GP here.
If you have a medical issue and are unsure of what to do, call NHS 111 for assistance. The 111 helpline is there to guide you on how to get help with whatever medical condition you may be experiencing.
In more serious or life-threatening cases call 999 and ask for an ambulance.
The term Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) refers to the tax authority of the U.K. government. The agency, also known as Her Majesty's Revenue Services, is responsible for collecting taxes, paying child benefits, enforcing tax and customs laws, and enforcing the payment of minimum wage by employers.
To speak to someone at HMRC, please use the following numbers:
Talk to your line manager if you have any concerns within your workplace, or someone else if you'd prefer - for example, someone from the HR department. Arrange a meeting with them so you won't be disturbed.
