Remember to use NHS services wisely

STAY_WELL_THIS_WINTER_Final_Logo3_RGB-01 croppedChoosing which service is right for you at a given time may not always be easy – often you have more than one option. Visit www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNHSservices/Pages/NHSServices.aspx  to find out which service is right for you.

You should only use A&E or dial 999 in critical or life-threatening situations. For example:

  • loss of consciousness
  • acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
  • persistent, severe chest pain
  • breathing difficulties
  • severe bleeding that cannot be stopped
  • severe allergic reactions
  • severe burns or scalds

In the case of suspected heart attack or stroke call 999 immediately. Every second counts with these conditions.

Please follow @NHSNKCCG and @NHSGHCCG and this website for the latest updates.
