Take care in snowy and icy conditions

05 Feb 2013 10:59:59

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust is asking people to think carefully before venturing out, as some parts of the region experiences heavy snowfall and icy conditions. 

Don’t go out unless you have to and take care if you do go out in snowy and icy conditions. Also, keep an eye on elderly neighbours who may need help with shopping. And remember that 999 services are for life-threatening illnesses and emergencies. 

TRFT supports the Choose Well campaign to help people to choose the right service and get fast and effective treatment when they need it. The main message from Choose Well is that 999 and A&E services are for people with serious injuries, illnesses and emergencies.  

There are a number of other services that people can use without having to make an appointment for minor ailments and injuries, such as walk-in centres, urgent care centres and minor injuries. And pharmacists can give advice and over-the-counter treatments for coughs, colds and stomach upsets such as sickness and diarrhoea.  

If you are not sure about where to find the right service for you, there is a lot of information available now. Your local pharmacist can help you find the right service for you or you can go to www.nhs.uk or telephone NHS Direct on 0800 4647.
