Right Care Right Place

The way we access urgent care has changed. To protect us and the NHS, it’s important you know how to get the right care, in the right place.


This section is to help direct you to the right medical assistance when you are unwell or injured. Going directly to the person with the appropriate skills is important. This can help you access care as quickly as possible, leading to a speedier recovery. It also helps protect access for others. If we all use NHS services wisely, we can keep well and get the care we need quickly, safely and as close to home as possible. As an example did you know your pharmacist can help with minor illnesses, treatment and medication? Or that your optician can help with many eye problems? We hope this section helps you find the right care, in the right place.
