NHS – Help us to help you

This week, the NHS are launching a campaign to encourage people to still contact their doctor or NHS 111 should they feel unwell in anyway (it doesn’t have to be coronavirus related.) The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in a decrease in people accessing NHS services for a range of conditions that are not related to coronavirus. This appears to be impacting: adults and children attending at A&E departments for urgent and emergency medical issues, including serious conditions such as stroke and heart attacks; cancer patients attending their ongoing treatments; and expectant mothers attending for regular scans.  The NHS ‘Open for business’ campaign has been created to help address this issue by giving people permission to access NHS services and reassuring them that they won’t be a burden on the NHS.
