Helping you to help yourself

Helping you to help yourself

The NHS is under pressure from increasing demand, but you can help ease that pressure.

Here are a few tips how:

  • Please don’t ask for over the counter medicines on prescription for a minor illness 

    • Don’t just miss your GP appointment – tell them your not coming, preferably at least 24 hours in advance. 

      • Don’t just tick the box for repeat prescriptions – only order what you need


      • A&E is for emergencies only – if it is not an emergency, please try your local Pharmacy, GP, Urgent Care Centre or call 111 for advice and the out of hours GP’s


      Take Care of yourself and your NHS will take care of you
