A local signposting campaign to help the people of Telford and Wrekin to choose the right service for them has been rolled out.
The ‘Take Care Telford’ campaign reminds the general public to take the ‘fast track’ to get the care they need by promoting:
- The availability of NHS 111 – 24/7, 365 days a year for urgent medical help
- The availability of the pharmacy and the range of health problems that can be treated there
The campaign is running across the area and has been created using the views and opinions of a sample of the public. In addition the national Help Us to Help You – Stay Well This Winter campaign has also launched. The Patient Services Team has been busy taking out leaflets and posters to various organisations including the Cottage Care Centre in Newport, Age UK Day Centres, the Belmont Hall Coffee Morning in Wellington and the Salvation Hall in Oakengates. The Team also visited a number of Polish shops in Telford to hand out printed material in Polish.
