Local NHS services in St Helens along with Warrington, Halton and Knowsley, have come together for a week of action on social media to give people a glimpse of life at the front line of a range of NHS services

Each year, the NHS is faced with increased activity and pressures on services especially during the winter months.

To highlight these challenges and to give people a glimpse of life at the front line of a range of NHS services, the local NHS in St Helens along with Warrington, Halton and Knowsley have come together for a week of action on social media.

The ‘Let’s Do It Together’ week of action on social media platforms runs from today- Monday 13 December to Friday 17 December 2021 and will go behind the scenes at NHS 111, GP practices, Pharmacies, Urgent Care Centres and A&E across St Helens, Warrington, Halton and Knowsley, and where every day, colleagues in each area will share important messages about local NHS services.

Dr David Reade, St Helens CCG Governing Body GP and clinical lead for Urgent Care, said: “There are clear benefits to having a consistent approach to highlight the services where local people can get the right help, at the right time in the right place across the Mid Mersey area and to inform members of the public about the challenges the NHS faces each winter.

‘Let’s Do It Together’ is one way we’re promoting the services available to people and how these services can help them over the winter period, building upon work completed in the local area in previous years.”
