Every day of the year, the NHS is faced with challenges.
An ageing population, lifestyle factors, changes in public expectations and rising costs mean increased pressures on services.
That is why the NHS in Halton, St Helens, Knowlsey and Warrington are coming together to create the Let’s Do It Together campaign.
Let’s Do It Together is about highlighting the different NHS services available in each area and aims to give people a glimpse into life at the front line of the NHS.
Importantly, the campaign also asks you to get involved and help our doctors and nurses help the sickest patients by:
- Having a well-stocked home medicine cabinet to treat many day to day illnesses at home
- Choosing the most appropriate service when you feel unwell
- Looking after yourself and others and check on frail or older neighbours or relatives, especially those living alone or who have serious illnesses to make sure they are safe, warm and well
- When your loved ones no longer need hospital care we need you to collect them as soon as they are discharged to make beds available for the patient who needs it most
We’re asking you to help us keep our emergency services free for those who need them most.
We can’t do this without your help – so please support us, join our campaign let’s do it together.
