Our incredible NHS & key workers across St Helens Borough have pulled out all the stops to keep us safe this winter, and residents can keep playing their part too.
As NHS 111 First goes live on Merseyside, residents are encouraged to first contact NHS 111 if you think you need urgent but not emergency care, with teams of experienced health specialists on hand to help, give advice & book slots for St Helens GPs, the Urgent Treatment Centre and A&E.
As ever, our NHS is there for everyone to use, so please seek out care if you need it. Arrangements will not change for serious or life-threatening injuries which should be responded to by dialling 999 as normal.
I want to thank local NHS staff for helping to implement these changes, which will hopefully improve planning, reduce crowding on site and across services, ease pressures on staff, and ultimately slow the virus’ spread.
