There are more and more ways to access health care within the NHS. The choose well campaign was designed to encourage patients to consider where the most appropriate pathway for accessing healthcare may be. For minor medical problems it may be appropriate to self help or speak to a pharmacist before booking an appointment with your GP or go to A+E. There is a lot of health advice contained within NHS Choices or by calling 111.
Our local Clinical Commissioning Group has produced the following website to help you manage minor conditions, and choose the most appropriate pathway for care.
