Why Choose Well?

Choosing well means:

  • Spending less time waiting for treatment
  • Getting the best treatment for your symptoms
  • Freeing up the emergency department (A&E) to treat those with the most serious illnesses or injuries

Over a quarter of people who visit the emergency department could be treated by another NHS service.  Make sure you use the right service for your symptoms by checking the Choose Well Guide.
