​​Not always A and E​​

Winter is always a busy time for the health service and this can lead to long waiting times in A&E departments. However, there are plenty of alternative options for people with conditions that aren't life-threatening.

We are running a campaign with giant yellow statues to educate local people about what other services are available to them. To search for a local service for you visit www.nhs.uk​.
