In partnership with the Choose Well campaign, we are helping you get the best possible treatment by selecting the service that is right for you.
By choosing well, you will help to reduce the burden on essential emergency services.
For minor illnesses like a sore throat, hangover or grazed knee, self-care is the best choice. For common health problems visit your pharmacist, GP or walk-in centre.
In 2011/12 33,000 ambulances turned up at our Emergency Department. Almost 12% of people coming to A&E received no treatment, just advice.
Keep 999 and A&E free for serious and life-threatening conditions.
