Help Us Help You
This winter, NHS England and Public Health England have introduced a new overarching brand that brings together all the winter pressures campaign activity – ‘Help Us, Help You’.
The winter months can be challenging for the NHS, especially for urgent care services. The ‘Help Us, Help You’ campaign aims to help reduce these pressures. This includes messages about flu immunisation, staying well in winter, NHS 111, community pharmacy and extended GP hours.
By following their advice, you can help NHS experts help you stay well, prevent an illness getting worse, take the best course of action and get well again sooner.
Appointments with a GP, nurse or other healthcare professional are now available in the evenings and weekends, either at a local practice or another nearby NHS service in Wiltshire.
