Help us help you: NHS urges public to get care when they need it

While NHS staff have pulled out all the stops to deal with coronavirus, the NHS is still there for patients without coronavirus.

If you need urgent and emergency services for stroke, heart attack, and other killer conditions the NHS is still available to help you. 

And it is safe to access care.

If you or a loved one have the symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, are a parent worried about their child or have concerns about conditions such as cancer you should seek help in the way you always would.

People should contact their GP or the 111 service if they have urgent care needs – or 999 in emergencies – and to attend hospital if they are told they should.

Ignoring problems can have serious consequences – now or in the future.
