New Advice line for Rotherham Patients

20 Oct 2011 09:27:20


A new telephone help and advice line is operating in Rotherham to direct patients to appropriate services, to prevent them turning up at A&E if their condition is not life threatening or urgent or to avoid waiting too long at the Walk in Centre. 

Rotherham patients who need immediate health advice or reassurance and can’t wait for an appointment with their GP, can dial 0333 321 8282 to speak to a nurse or GP who will be able to advise the appropriate treatment, refer to other services or make an appointment direct with the Walk In Centre or out of hours GP service. 

The new service is provided by Care UK and aims to reduce the number of patients who turn up both at A&E and the Walk In Centre during the winter months with minor conditions such as coughs and colds. 

It is operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including Christmas Day until 31 March 2012.
