Stay Well in West Leicestershire 

We understand it’s not always easy to understand where to go when you’re not well. There are a lot of different options and, especially when you’re feeling under the weather, it can seem like there are a confusing range of options of ways to access health care, whether it’s walk in centres or urgent care centres, NHS111 or 999, GP or pharmacists.

Our message is very simple this year - if you're not sure what to do, and you think you need immediate medical attention, call NHS111. They will navigate you through the health and social care services, and make sure you get the help you need.

For information, video clips and lots of other ways to stay well this winter, you can visit our new Stay Well This Winter website for advice and information on keeping well in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

To help you understand the options availble to you we've put together a step by step guide to how to manage your health and get the most out of NHS services, as well as some local links to services in your area. If you're in doubt about which service is best for you, call NHS111.
