					Make the right
choice this winter.
There’s a range of NHS services on your doorstep. By
making the right choice at the right time, you get the
best possible treatment.

An easy way to think about how to get the right treatment is
to think of it like this thermometer. It shows you what to do
depending on how poorly you are. Please read this guide
carefully. It will help you decide how to get the right
treatment, in the right place.

Remember to get your Flu jab if you are 65+, pregnant or
have a long term condition (ask your GP). If you have a repeat
prescription, make sure you are stocked up on your
medication. Speak to your GP or pharmacist for more
information.




  Your local
  GP Practice.
  Make an appointment to see your local GP
  for advice and treatment for health problems
  that won’t go away.

  If you need to see a doctor outside normal
  surgery opening hours and it is an
  emergency, you can call the GP Out of
  Hours service. It’s staffed by local doctors
  and you can contact this service by calling
  your GP practice telephone number and you
  will be redirected to the out of hours service.
