As the long festive break begins, a reminder for all cholangiocarcinoma patients and their carers in the UK – if you have medical concerns during Christmas and New Year holidays, especially if you are undergoing treatment, first try the contact numbers you will have been given by your hospital or CNS (clinical nurse specialist) or if they are not available, for help and advice contact:
ENGLAND – NHS 111 on 111
WALES – NHS Direct Wales on 0845 46 47
SCOTLAND – NHS 24 on 111 in Scotland
NORTHERN IRELAND – use the GP out of hours services
And if you have a MEDICAL EMERGENCY, call 999 immediately.
