Hi, over the last month I've had shortness of breath on and off. Can I go to A and E. My GP told me not to come back.

Why did your GP tell you not to come back?

You have a few options (but don't go to A&E unless the shortness of breath is constant):

- Get a new GP and see them. Your current one doesn't sound good
- Phone 111 for medical advice
- Go to a walk-in clinic

Anything that has lasted a month is neither an accident nor an emergency, unless it has suddenly gotten worse.

The clue is in the name. A&E is for emergencies, not as an alternative for your GP. If you disagree with your GP then you are entitled to a second opinion from another doctor at the practice.
