February News Update
Choosing the correct NHS service in Calderdale

Winter sees all our health services under a lot of pressure. To help the NHS, we all need to know which service is best suited to our medical needs.
  • Is your first aid kit stocked up?
  • Do you know when to seek advice from a pharmacist rather than calling your GP?
  • Do you know when to call NHS111 or visit A&E?
The NHS also run a free mental health helpline if you are feeling down.

Our web page has a short video guide to help you make the right choice for your needs.
