Call to action to HelpMyNHS: Local people are being called to action to help the NHS provide the best possible care.
The NHS is doing everything it can with the resources it has to deal with the extra pressures. #HelpMyNHS is calling on the public to play their part by adopting small behavioural changes to ease pressures on local health and care services, saving them for those in the most need. It asks people to:
- #HelpMyA&E by highlighting alternative services to A&E and when to use them.
- #HelpMyGP by using GP appointments properly; taking steps to help prevent getting ill; self-managing minor illnesses; and, using alternative services (e.g. pharmacists).
Nationally, 1 in 4 people are reported to go to A&E when they could have been treated elsewhere. Additionally, 1 in 4 people who visit their GP with a minor illness could have been treated at home with the help of a pharmacist.
A dedicated social media campaign and website [www.sussexhelpmy.nhs.uk] highlights alternatives to A&E visits or GP appointments, and is tailored to include listings on services available to the public across Sussex. Alternatively, watch this short animation here.
When the surgery is closed please consider the following alternatives to A&E:
