Choose Well to get Well this Winter
Look after yourself and the children this Christmas - Every winter thousands of Eastern Cheshire people visit A&E or their GP with ailments that would be better treated at home.
Research by NHS Eastern Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) suggests that children aged nought to nine are the second most regular category of patients visiting their GP with coughs, colds and sore throats.
That's why the CCG is urging primary schools to display its Choose Well posters giving parents the information they need to choose the right care at the right time.

A hate crime could happen to a person because of race, religion, belief, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.
