Choose Better this May Day Bank Holiday weekend

30th April 2014

Ahead of this year’s May Day Bank Holiday weekend, the CCG is encouraging people looking to make the most of their time off, by doing DIY, gardening or enjoying a day out, to Choose Better and use the right option should they suffer a minor illness or injury such as a bruise, sprain, minor wound or fracture.

We want to make sure everyone knows the best place to go in order to get the most suitable treatment as quickly as possible and leave A&E free for those who need it most.
