New winter campaign launched to encourage people to think which service
Health and care leaders are calling on residents across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin to help stretched A&E and GP surgeries this winter by re-thinking which service they opt for when unwell.
The Think Which Service campaign urges local people to ‘Think Self-Care’ and to consider using services such as their local pharmacy, Minor Injury Units or NHS 111, before turning straight to their GP, the nearest A&E or dialling 999.
To find out more and get the right support in the right place, people can visit www.thinkwhichservice.co.uk online and follow the campaign on social media using #ThinkWhichService.
Remember, 999 and A&E are for an emergency, or life-threatening situations only.
