Walk in Urine samples Coffee with Mates Online Appointments Cheshire and Merseyside residents urged to ‘give digital a go’ as part of new NHS campaign How you make a complaint about primary care services is changing on 1 July 2023 Carers Week 2023 Hypertension day – 17 May 2023 Coffee with Mates dates May – July ’23 Vaccination reminder in World Immunisation Week (24-30 April) Test of Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system at 3pm on Sunday 23rd April
With further strike action affecting North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) this month, the public are being urged only to call 999 in a life-threatening emergency.
Ambulance service staff from GMB and Unison trade unions will go on strike again on Wednesday 11 January 2023. Unison and Unite members will also be taking further action on Monday 23 January 2023. This is a continuing dispute between trade unions and the government over pay.
While ambulances will still be available on these days, they should only be used for people with life-threatening injuries and illnesses, such as: cardiac arrest, loss of consciousness, fits that aren’t stopping, breathing difficulties, severe bleeding, severe allergic reactions, and serious head injuries.
Other patients requiring hospital treatment will likely be asked to take alternative transport, such as a taxi or to get a lift from family or friends.
People should use 111.nhs.uk, their GP, or local pharmacy for help with all non-urgent health concerns.
This is all the more important as the strike action taking place on 11 January will see more staff striking, meaning reduced ambulance crews but also reduced 999 and 111 call handling staff and fewer staff in Patient Transport Services (PTS).
Patient Transport Services on 11 January 2023 will only be available for renal, oncology and palliative care appointments. Providers will be in touch to inform you if your appointment is being cancelled, or to advise if you need to seek alternative transport.
NHS 111 Online can tell you:
If you are calling about a mental health concern, the mental health crisis line available for Liverpool is 0800 145 6570.

NHS Cheshire and Merseyside has launched a new campaign to increase awareness of online health services …
From 1 July 2023 the way members of the public make a complaint about primary care services to the commissioner is changing….
High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases the risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Around 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it.
With one in ten children not up to date with their vaccinations and at risk of becoming seriously unwell, this World Immunisation Week (24-30th April) the NHS is encouraging people to make sure they are up to date with their routine vaccinations at all life stages.
At 3pm on Sunday 23rd April there will be a test of the Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system set up to warn people across the UK if there’s a danger to life nearby.
