Demand for NHS Services increases significantly over winter. The Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has said that we can help to reduce pressure on the system by thinking about which type of health service is most appropriate for our needs.

Dr Guy Rooney, Medical Director, Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust,  comments:

Choosing the right option first time not only allows us to focus our attention on the people who need care the most, but also improves a patient’s chance of being seen quicker.
