Healthcare means many things to different people. Some may think of healthcare as their GP or A&E, but NHS services include a wide range of options that you may have used or may need to use in the future.
Patients have a variety of options they can choose if they need treatment. In this section, you will find information about how you can choose the right service at the right time. Your ongoing health is as important to the NHS as patching you up and sending you on your way. Keeping healthy through diet, exercise or lifestyle habits are one of the biggest factors in preventing illness.
Making small changes to your lifestyle can improve your health, preventing cancers, stroke, diabetes and other long-term conditions. Eating well and moving more can help you live longer.
