NHS Hampshire is under severe pressure - when to dial 999
The NHS in Hampshire continues to be under severe pressure at the moment because a lot of people are still attending Emergency Departments. Only dial 999 if someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk. For all non-emergency healthcare advice, please use: • NHS Choices website – https://www.nhs.uk for advice on a wide range of illnesses and conditions. • Local pharmacists – who are health professionals and able to give advice. • NHS 111 - Appointments are available with a GP or practice nurse at the extended hours hubs, which are open every weekday until 8 p.m. at Andover, Winchester, Romsey, Hedge End, Ringwood and Lymington. Weekend opening times vary.
Please also check on older or more vulnerable neighbours and check they have enough prescription medication and over the counter remedies. More information can be found at www.westhampshireccg.nhs.uk
