How to Access Help 

 

  • Help to find the right treatment, is available at the touch of a button on your mobile phone or table.  Download the free Health Help Now app or visit www.healthhelpnow.nhs.uk
  • If you are feeling unwell, don’t wait for it to get worse. Look up advice online through approved NHS sources, such as NHS Choices, speak to a pharmacist, or contact your GP.
  • If you are unsure about what services are right for you, you can check your symptoms online at www.nhs.uk or call NHS111 for advice.
  • Croydon now has three new GP Hubs that provide a wide range of urgent care services for all ages including appointments booked through 111, with a GP available from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week. Walk in appointments are available at GP Hubs but you may need to wait longer.
  • You can often treat the flu without seeing your GP and should begin to feel better in about a week.  Read more about what to do if you think you or a loved one may have flu www.nhs.uk/conditions/flu/ 
  • Norovirus, which causes diarrhoea and vomiting, can be very unpleasant but it usually clears up by itself in a few days.  You can normally look after yourself or your child at home.  Try to avoid going to your GP, as norovirus can spread to others very easily.

Health Help Now comes to Croydon

 

 

Croydon Clinical Commissioning Group has recently launched a new digital service called Health Help Now to help local people to understand where they should go for treatment, especially when they need healthcare in a hurry, late at night or on weekends. This has been live in Kent and Medway since December 2013 and is now being used in 15 CCGs. 

 

Health Help Now is an award-winning mobile app and website designed to assist people in checking their symptoms, find advice and get directions to the best place for treatment by showing you the nearest services which are open. Importantly, it will help people get the right advice on the right services helping to reduce the number of unnecessary trips to A&E. 

 

In Croydon alone during 2015-16, an estimated 29,200 people visited A&E but didn't need treatment there. Whilst Health Help Now isn't about stopping A&E attendances - it does aim to help people understand when it's right to go to A&E.
