Help Us, Help You campaign launched

Help to reduce the pressure on NHS services this winter by keeping these few simple messages in mind.
The right medical attention when you urgently need it Call 111 banner

Public Health England and the NHS have teamed up to promote the new 'Help Us Help You' campaign to reduce pressure on health services this winter.

It aims to help people understand how to navigate the NHS and get the right help and advice they need in the most timely and appropriate way. It encourages people to take appropriate actions – whether that’s getting the flu vaccination or accessing the most appropriate service – to better enable the NHS to help them.
5 things you can do to stay well this winter:
  • Make sure you get your flu jab.
  • Keep your home at 18°C (65°F) or higher if you can.
  • Take advantage of financial schemes and discounts to help you pay for heating.
  • Visit your local pharmacist as soon as you start to feel unwell with the symptoms of a respiratory winter illness.
  • Look out for other people who may need a bit of extra help over the winter.

They're also promoting the NHS 111 service. If you think you might need medical help right now you can call 111. Their fully trained advisors are available 24 hours a day and can put you straight through to healthcare professionals.
