Health and care services in Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes have been working in different ways to provide the care that residents need.

Bedfordshire, Luton, and Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been working in partnership with local hospitals, GP practices, pharmacies, and other healthcare providers in the area to develop a short guide to help residents to make the right choice to get the treatment they need.

The leaflet titled ‘Help us help you and your family stay well’ will be delivered to every home in Bedfordshire, Luton, and Milton Keynes later this month.

Dr Sarah Whiteman, GP and clinical chair for Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes CCG, said:

“It’s really important that our local population know that there is a range of healthcare services available to support them.

“We know that with all the different services and different ways to access them it can sometimes be confusing for people to know the best place to go.

“We really hope that this leaflet will help guide people to the right services to help everyone get the care and treatment they need.

“We want our residents to come forward for help as soon as they need it, and this leaflet will provide people with the confidence to know that they are going to the right service.

“The NHS is here for you and working hard to make sure that you get the care that you need.”

Whilst people may think their GP practice is the first point of call, the right care may be your local pharmacy, urgent treatment centre, and in some cases self care from the comfort of your own home.

To view the leaflet online or for more information about accessing your local healthcare, please visit the CCG’s website.
