Choose Well In Manchester!

Choose Well

NHS Manchester is asking you to think carefully about how you access health and medical care.

Please think twice and consider if attending an A&E department is really necessary and the best option for you, or whether you may be better seeking advice and help from one of our community healthcare services. Of course, in a genuine emergency the A&E department will provide the best possible care to patients.

They have now launched a Choose well Manchester site with lots of clear, easy to understand self-care information and advice on what to do when you or someone you care for is ill. There are videos, downloadable leaflets and the website itself can be displayed in 66 languages.

Every winter we see more people with underlying health problems who need to be admitted to hospital. It's vital that our A&E departments are able to concentrate on the patients who are really unwell and aren't distracted by people with minor illnesses who should really look after themselves at home.

The website can be found here.
