The NHS in Kent and Medway is busy and have asked us to let patients know the best place to go for treatment.
Please see this online leaflet and this web address www.stopthinkchoose.co.uk , which lists the services available and how to use them:
The Stop Think Choose website gives details of urgent treatment centres (UTCs) and shows the opening times for all pharmacies in the county.
UTCs can treat a variety of minor illness and injury. Patients can either walk-in or call NHS 111, which can book an appointment.
Pharmacists are highly trained health professionals, who are qualified to offer health advice and guidance, particularly on common problems such as headache, coughs and colds, tummy bugs and verrucas. Opening times for the Easter bank holiday are also on our website.
Please help us to help you and share these messages with your friends, family, colleagues and anyone with children or older relatives.
