    Could be worth calling your GP surgery tomorrow morning and asking if a nurse can look at it. They'll know if there are any issues going on and how to treat it. Until then, make sure you've cleaned it with something like antiseptic wipes and shove a plaster or bandage on it.
    Oh and rabies is non existent in the UK so you don't need to worry about that. Infection is a big concern with animal bites though which is why is important to make sure it's well cleaned and watch for signs of infection like swelling, heat and redness.

    Nurse will be able to help you out though so do that or head to a pharmacy or walk-in clinic. Hope it heals up soon.
