Choose Well

There are lots of places that you can get advice and help  from when you are not well. The following links and leaflets can help you choose the best place to get this advice from depending on what symptoms you have. This is good for you because you get the help you need, and it is good for the NHS as it makes the best use of resources.

Choose Well Website

This is an Hampshire PCT Website to help you decide if you need advice from NHS Direct, your pharmacy, GP or Hospital

NHS Direct

This is a great website for advice on conditions that don’t usually need a GP appointment - like sore throats, coughs and diarrhoea for example. You can also talk to a member of their trained staff if you have more concerns.

You can call NHS Direct on  0845 4647
